To be fair, Kiribati is not currently picking up and moving to Fiji. They are attempting to buy land on Fiji as a contingency should sea level rise make Kiribati functionally uninhabitable.

Neither Kiribati, or Tuvalu, or the Maldives are subject to 'rising sea levels' above the post-glacial mean. We know the sea levels are not rising along the Australian coastline for certain.
Sadly, Kiribati and the others are the tiny pin-head peaks of ocean volcanoes, based on a very unstable sea floor.

They - of course - sinking..
