As of February 3, 2021, Tahiti's borders will be closed again, temporarily. We expect borders to open again after 2-3 months.
French Polynesia has been welcoming back guests since July, 2020. As of February 3, 2021, their borders will be closed again, temporarily. Despite Tahiti's progress in combatting the COVID virus, other areas under French rule have not fared so well. As a precaution, the leaders of France have mandated that all French Territories close their borders for a two month period. This is due to concerns in France about new COVID variants and is not correlated to the progress made on the ground in Tahiti. In the months preceding this mandate, Tahiti was trending very positively with decline numbers of cases.
The leaders of French Polynesia have been very clear that this closure should not last more than 2-3 months.
