Fiji - Aust bubble still a long way out: Minister The escalating cases of coronavirus in Fiji has set back hopes of opening a travel bubble with Australia any time soon.

Australia’s Minister for International Development Zed Seselja said the first priority is to see steps that will be taken by the government to control the increasing number of cases.

Seselja during a virtual press conference said it was difficult to see any progress at this stage considering the spike in cases in Fiji.

“With Fiji in particular, the biggest setback was the most recent outbreak, which you’re all aware of and dealing with,” he said.

“Until that is under control and we see those case numbers come down significantly we will be able to hold dialogue with leaders on a possible travel bubble.

Also if we see the population significantly vaccinated, or at least the situation significantly under control, but for it’d be difficult to obviously see those progressing,” he said.

“I think we would look to take potentially baby steps like vacation paradise model before moving to a full bubble and then other arrangements beyond that.

“But what we could see, as Australia’s population gets vaccinated, I mean, we’re doing now around a million a week, and we anticipate that that will grow considerably in these next couple of months.

“So, as a substantial portion of the Australian population is vaccinated, a substantial portion of the Fijian population is vaccinated. And as we see things relaxed internally, I think there will be the opportunity to see that.”
