Detailed Tourist Information

International travel to Kiribati is currently suspended. All commercial flights to and from Kiribati have been suspended. The Government of Kiribati has arranged occasional repatriation flights but these too are currently suspended following two positive COVID-19 cases in Kiribati in mid-May 2021. It is unclear when repatriation or commercial flights will resume.

Kiribati will deny entry to any travellers who have been in or transited countries with confirmed local transmission within 14 days immediately prior to entering Kiribati. A list of countries covered by these restrictions is available from the Kiribati Ministry of Health and Medical Services.
