Just a gentle reminder to us all, that we should be all abiding citizens of the countries of our temporary residences we reside in this region, including strictly adhering to migration and residency laws. In doing this we will not only honor the laws of the host country as we should but we will honor ourselves, our families, our home country and those fellow Fijians who aspire to follow in our footsteps to find employment in our host countries. If we flout the visa laws under which we have come, this will undoubtedly muddy the waters for all aspiring Fijian workers.
