Update: 5:26PM THE Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) says the recent reissuing of advice for Fiji on August 12 is the result of a periodic review and is not an upgrade on the level of warning given to Australian travellers.

The Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) had issued the renewed travel advisory warning Australians to exercise a high degree of caution when travelling to Suva because of the prevalence of crime and potential for civil unrest.

"Contrary to incorrect media reporting which has since been corrected, DFAT has not upgraded the level of warning for Fiji and Suva and it remains unchanged," the Australian Government said.
