With the news that Australian Survivor is to begin filming in Queensland in the coming months, Survivor US is also looking to resume production, as members of the crew are set to arrive in Fiji in the coming days.
As first reported by FBC News, Fiji’s Minister for Commerce, Trade, Tourism, and Transport, Faiyaz Koya, confirmed that Survivor and other film productions have been given the green-light to film in Fiji.
“Survivor will be filming in Fiji with the crew expecting to arrive in the next few days,” Koya said during a February 11 parliament meeting. “They have to stagger the way they actually come because most of the crew are sitting in different parts of the world, but all done under the guidance of the Ministry of Health. We follow the necessary protocol to protect our own citizens.”
