There are many different options when shipping to Fiji, although many people opt for cargo liners on the ocean.

Security concerns when shipping to Fiji
There are quite a few security concerns when talking about shipping to Fiji. The most obvious one being that of piracy. And even though the Fiji government has used patrol boats in the waters surrounding Fiji since 1987 as a security measure to help ward off such attacks, piracy still continues to be an active part of shipping procedures to the country. This means that your shipment, if shipped via ocean cargo fright liners, is potentially exposed to the threat of an attack and your goods have the possibility of being stolen or damaged in the process. This is why it is best to take out some insurance before shipping to Fiji if possible and to get a tracking number as well so you will be notified if something happens to your shipment.
Required documents when shipping to Fiji
The exact documents that you will need when shipping to Fiji will vary depending on what you are shipping and how you plan to ship it. That being said, it is more than likely that you will need a Bill of Lading and a Certificate of origin for most everything you could possibly ship there. If it is an order of some sort, then a commercial invoice will need to be affixed to the package as well. Please be aware that you may be assess a duty or fee when shipping to Fiji and that duty, if applicable, will need to be paid before your parcel is released to its recipient.
