Fiji, Viti Levu: Port of Lautoka No Longer Offering Clearance Services

Noonsite has received information that the Port of Lautoka on Fiji’s west coast is no longer providing clearance services or allowing yachts to anchor near the port.

Published 4 years ago

According to Port Facilities Security Officer Emosi Navusolo, the Port of Lautoka will “no longer entertain yachts anchored out in the stream between Bekana Island and the mainland, west of Amex wharf.”

“This is due to access into Lautoka Port from the seaside and gate being restricted,” said Mr Navusolo.

Port development

The change is due to the development of Lautoka Port and the facility being earmarked to cater to bigger vessels.

Yachts are advised to use the clearance services at Vuda Marina for safety and security.
