Frequently asked questions

  • How do I get to Fiji?
    Fiji’s international airport is situated in Nadi on the island of Viti Levu. Nanuku is also located on Viti Levu. Fiji Airways offers nonstop flights from the US, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, Singapore, Japan and Hong Kong — just some of the more than 100 international flights at Nadi International each week.
  • Would we require a tourist visa to visit Fiji?
    All visitors to Fiji must have a current passport that is valid for at least six months from the date of entry, return or ongoing air tickets, and adequate funds for their support. Nationals from visa-exempt countries are granted a visitor permit valid for up to four months and extensions may be granted for an additional two months.
  • What type of property ownership exists in Fiji?
    There are two fundamental types of interests in land which can be owned in Fiji. A freehold interest in land denotes true ownership of the land — it can be bought and sold freely and owned forever. All land and villas at Nanuku are freehold ownership. A leasehold interest in land grants the right to exclusively occupy land for a period of time. This is monitored by the iTaukei Land Trust Board. In Fiji, freehold or leasehold is via a Torrens title land registration system with the title guaranteed by the State. Fiji freehold land (about 8% of the existing landmass) is available for outright purchase. This land can be bought and sold by overseas buyers as individuals or can be put into trusts or companies. Free and clear titles are available for all properties at Nanuku.
  • Can a non-resident buy property in Fiji?
    There are few restrictions when it comes to purchasing real estate in Fiji. You do not need to be a citizen of Fiji to purchase real estate in Fiji. Any non-resident can purchase real estate subject to obtain Ministerial Consent (if applicable) and you also need to register with Fiji Revenue and Customs Service (FRCS) for tax purposes.
  • What form of ownership is permitted in Fiji?
    Ownership of real estate in Fiji can be by an individual or more than one person. Businesses and partnerships can acquire, hold, and convey real estate properties in Fiji. Trusts and joint ventures can also purchase real estate in Fiji.
  • What is the purchase process?
    Once you decide to purchase real estate, you will sign a ‘Sale and Purchase Agreement’ and make a 10% deposit into a Trust Account. Upon settlement, funds will be released and you will receive a Certificate of Title in your name.
  • What is the legal contract for purchasing real estate property in Fiji?
    Any legal contract for purchasing properties in Fiji must be in writing and valid. The common law of contracts, also similar to the UK and the United States, is to prepare a contract every time one sells or purchases a property. A Sale and Purchase Agreement by the seller is checked and approved by a certified lawyer prior to signing.
