"It was particularly mentioned the clear improvement and stabilization of the health crisis in French Polynesia with less than 20 new cases of COVID-19 per week, thanks to the maintenance of measures to protect the population; also, it was communicated that the vaccination campaign is accelerating in Tahiti and its islands, where vaccination against COVID-19 is now accessible to all; moreover French Polynesia has proposed to adapt its entry and stay protocols to take into account vaccinated people and immunized travelers; finally, the degraded economic and social context of our destination heavily dependent on tourism has of course been widely exposed." says Tahiti Tourism's press release.
The modalities of entrance into Polynesian territories are not yet known.
The President of French Polynesia clarified "We will detail the health system and protocol in detail with the High Commissioner in the coming days ”.
