My brother just sent this to me, he apparently received the information from somebody with good knowledge in Fiji.
There has been secretly formed a new police/military unit composed of 25 troops to enforce the regulations in regards to vessels within Fiji. They are in the process of installing marine band VHF radios in the various police stations to monitor vessel traffic (in addition to the HF monitoring stations in Suva) in an attempt to catch violators (ie, a person who drops the anchor to get a few winks before continuing onto a port of entry before they check in). They are also going to be specifically trying to target yachts which stop (illegally) in the Lau Group before checking in. The folks in Lau love it (the cruisers), the military does not (long political power story in Fiji).
Getting caught anchoring before checking in at an official port of entry will not be pleasant.
