Volunteering Prices - Fijian Dollars

Please note: although Vinaka Fiji volunteer programs are available from 1 week, we strongly suggest you consider at least 2 weeks in the field. The longer you spend volunteering, the more value you add and greater the benefit for communities in the Yasawa Islands.

The remote village environment and expected working hours required for the volunteer programs is not suitable for children therefore we have a minimum age policy of 16 years. 

THESE PRICES ARE IN $FJD.

General information and booking conditions

  • Programs are open to people aged 16 years and older
  • Volunteers are required to attend a briefing prior to Saturday departure. We recommend volunteers arrive into Fiji at least a day prior to commencing their Vinaka Fiji program (i.e. Thursday or Friday) to ensure you are able to attend the Saturday morning briefing at Port Denarau Marina, before boarding the Yasawa Flyer and travelling to the volunteer base at Barefoot Manta.
  • Volunteers may book any number of weeks from 1 to 26 however the program can only be purchased in multiples of one week. 
  • Police Clearance Check: Volunteers wanting to participate in the education programs must provide a Police Clearance check or 'Working with Children' check from their country of residence. Copies must be received along with completed Registration Form at least two weeks prior to commencement on the program.
  • Marine Conservation Program - volunteers must be PADI or SSI certified divers to participate in the Marine Conservation Program. A full training and certification course (approx 5 days) is available in Fiji prior to your volunteer weeks. Volunteer weeks (5 days) include all dive and snorkel gear.
  • Package includes vessel transfers, accommodation and meals. Programs run from a Saturday morning through to the following Saturday morning and are a total of 7 nights in duration - five days volunteer work each week.
  • Complimentary coach transfers are available for direct transfer from Port Denarau to Nadi Airport if departing on the evening of your return back to Nadi. Clients must book in advance.
  • Prices and Currency: All prices are in Fijian Dollars per person and include taxes where applicable. Prices listed as 'Twin/Double' are per person based on 2 people sharing a room or bure.
  • Credit Card Payments A 2.5% administration fee applies to all credit card payments (non refundable).
  • Donations must be paid in Fiji at time of check in at Port Denarau unless alternative arrangements are agreed to.
  • Vessel Transfers: Vinaka Fiji reserves the right to cancel departures, alter prices, apply a fuel surcharge, arrange alternative transport and vary services as necessary. All transfers are subject to sea and weather conditions and operational requirements. Should adverse conditions prevent operation the client is responsible at their own cost for their own additional accommodation wherever it may be and/or alternative travel arrangements not organised by the Company. Vinaka Fiji shall be the sole judge of when vessels should not operate under this clause.
  • Liability: Where another company or persons operate the tour, activity or excursion, diving, accommodation or shore transfers Vinaka Fiji is only acting as a Sales Agent. Responsibility for the operation and liability for any mishap lies with those operators solely and not with Vinaka Fiji. Vinaka Fiji is not responsible for missed flights or any associated expenses due to late arrival at check-in counter.
  • Visa Requirements It is the responsibility of all guests travelling with Vinaka Fiji to check and adhere to Fiji's visa requirements
  • Travel Insurance: There are no medical facilities in the Yasawas so if any medical problem arises you will need to return to Nadi. If you develop a serious medical problem you will most likely want to leave Fiji for Australia, New Zealand or home. There is also a higher degree of risk in public areas, on local vessels etc. Sea conditions and sometimes cyclones can prevent travel on the booked dates as well.
  • It is therefore an essential condition of travelling with Vinaka Fiji that you have a valid travel insurance policy to cover the cost of any emergency medical treatment or accident and to protect your holiday payments in the event of cancellation. Vinaka Fiji has insurance cover available with a leading insurer of adventure style travel which can be taken out at time of booking.

    • We will not regard a booking as cancelled unless and until written notice is received by us from you or someone acting on your authority. Cancellation fees apply on the total package price including donation – less than 7 days notice 100%, less than 14 days notice – 50%, less than 1 months notice – 25%. We will not regard a booking as cancelled unless and until written notice is received by us from you or someone acting on your authority.
    • Amendment Policy: Change of booking within 24 hours of travel, including after travel has commenced will incur a FJ$100 amendment fee ● More than 24 hours notice $20 FJD ● More than 1 months notice prior to commencement of travel No charge.

Visa Information

As most Volunteers choose to stay and travel around Fiji for either a few days or weeks before of after volunteering, they should all enter the country on a "Visitor/Tourist Visa", which can be obtained for a period of up to 3 months. There is currently no specific Visa for Volunteers in Fiji and volunteering is NOT considered work under the Immigration requirements, so you do not need a work visa.
