URGENT - STUCK IN FIJI

URGENT - STUCK IN FIJI

We are asking Mr Raab and the British government to organise repatriation flights for British citizens stranded in Fiji.

Why is this important?

Fiji airways have cancelled 95% of their flights as the country goes into lockdown due to COVID-19. Singapore, Australia and New Zealand have all closed their borders meaning no passengers can transit through at all. As of midnight tonight (23/03/20) there are no flights to America either. These were our extremely limited options out of Fiji and now all British citizens are completely stuck here with no way out of the country.

In addition Nadi has issued severe weather warnings of flash flooding due to it being cyclone season. This will further impact travel.

It is imperative that Mr Raab and the British government arrange to send repatriation flights as soon as possible.

Reasons for signing

  • I was stuck in Fiji with 100s of travelling backpackers who have had no help and no support. I spent over £3000 on flights that we weren’t allowed to get on and almost got to a stage that I couldn’t even feed my self. Hostels are closing and people will have no money, no food and no where to stay. Send help immediately.
  • Bring my brother in law and sister in law home
  • To help get my great niece Laura home
