Fiji's SODELPA wants China's visa-free access canned

From , 3:03 pm on 23 August 2017

The opposition in Fiji has called for the suspension of visa free entry for China's nationals following the mass deportation of fraud suspects to China this month.

Seventy-seven Chinese nationals, accused of running an online scam targeting people in China, were rounded up and flown from Nadi on the fourth of August.

Visa free access for Chinese passport holders was brought in more than two years ago for those visiting for less than thirty days.

But SODELPA's defence spokesperson Mosese Bulitavu told Sally Round the people of Fiji are in the dark about how the policy's monitored.
