I am a Nigerian living in Nigeria.

I intend to travel to Fiji Island. I was asked to get a Brazil transit visa.

Secondly, do I need to get an invitation letter from someone residing in Fiji to be able to travel there?

    What is your full flight itinerary? There are no flights from Brazil to Fiji, so there must be at least one more stop involved. – lambshaanxy Dec 27 '18 at 1:20
  • How are you getting from Nigeria to Fiji? I've checked two booking sites and neither of them show flights via South America, let alone Brazil. All I can see is going via Europe and/or the Middle East, with a dash of India thrown in for good measure. – Peter M Dec 27 '18 at 12:13

United's version of the Timatic software/database states that you do not need a visa for Fiji but you should have evidence of onward travel.

You also will need:

Vaccination against yellow fever required if arriving within 10 days after leaving or transiting countries with risk of yellow fever transmission.

The Fijian Embassy in Washington D.C. sums it up nicely:

Requirements for Applicants from Exempted Countries

  • A valid passport that does not expire within 6 months from the date of departure from Fiji
  • Return air tickets showing the date of departure from Fiji or the country of your next visit
  • Proof that you have enough funds for your travel to Fiji in the form of a bank statement (translated in English)

If your are transiting in Brazil ON THE SAME TICKET, you do not need a visa. If you have separate tickets, you will need a visa.

  • You also need a visa if changing airports in Brazil, which happens occasionally. – Michael Hampton Dec 27 '18 at 3:48
