Fiji - Advance Notice of Arrival Reminder

Subject: ADVANCE NOTICE OF ARRIVAL FIJI WATERS

Message:
Appreciate it if you could remind yachts, particularly of French origin, that if they come to Fiji at least 48 hours advanced warning should be given to Customs. Some yacht skippers have been fined up to F$4000 for not complying to Section 11A(2) of the Customs Act.

I have helped a number of skippers from being heavily fined after pleading with customs for their ignorance to these laws, however after next month there will be little I can do for them. Their excuse is that it is not printed in French on their websites.

OUR CONTACT FOR CUSTOMS IS: yachtsreport@frca.org.fj
Website: www.frca.org.fj

Appreciate if you could pass this to other websites. Thanks for any help you can give.

ATTENTION Tout plaisancier arrivant aux iles Fidji doit avertir les autorités locales au MINIMUM 48h avant leur arrivée dans le pays. A partir de Novembre 2009, aucune excuse ne sera plus acceptée concernant les navires francophones qui prétendent ne pas être au courant de la loi! Une amende de 4000 F$ est la peine en cas d'infraction. Faites passer le mot autour de vous!!!

Courriel de contact des autorités fidjiennes: yachtsreport@frca.org.fj
site web: www.frca.org.fj

Pour rappel, toute arrivée en AUSTRALIE doit elle, être annoncée 96h d'avance sous sanction de peines lourdes aussi
