Infuriated of staying at home in this pandemic situation? Wish to go out on a luxury vacation? Dreaming of a vacation in a lonely island away from the world?

Prime Minister Fiji, Frank Bainimarama speaks of the billionaires to plan a trip to Fiji Island to revive the tourist industry. This might refresh your mind with the current situation due to COVID-19 in case you are looking for a vacation. 

Bainimarama mentioned in a tweet “So, say you’re a billionaire looking to fly your jet, rent your island, and invest millions of dollars in Fiji in the process”

“If you’ve taken all the necessary health precautions and borne all associated costs, you may have a new home to escape the pandemic in paradise.”

According to the sources the airport in Fiji had been closed since 25 March and curfew hours from 8am to 5pm were imposed.
