Update: 12:13PM NEW Zealand has lifted all travel sanctions against Fiji as well.

Foreign Affairs Minister Murray McCully announced this on his official website today saying the progress the island nation was making towards holding a free and fair election deserved recognition from the Pacific region from the Pacific region and international community.

He said the lifting of the travel ban is a continuation of its policy to support Fiji return to democratic rule.

Australia has also lifted travel sanctions, including bans imposed on the Prime Minister, ministers, military personnel and their family members, government appointees and the judiciary.

Fiji's permanent secretary for Information Sharon Smith-Johns said the Government will issue a statement on this development later today.
