Travel Tips – Our Top 5 FAQs answered
Travelling somewhere new is always exciting, but a little daunting. Here at the Norfolk Island Travel Centre, we are happy to answer any questions you may have about travelling to Norfolk Island, the Island itself or how to book a holiday to this beautiful paradise in the Pacific.
Here are five of the most common questions we are asked:
1. Are there COVID requirements before travelling to Norfolk Island?
There are no COVID travel requirements to Norfolk Island. While not mandatory, we recommended that you undertake a RAT within 48 hours of departing and if this is positive do not travel to the Island. Our health facilities are limited and if you are elderly, unvaccinated or with a comorbidity and become infected you will strain these facilities. Wearing a mask remains a very good protective measure particularly in in-door settings.
2. Do I need a Passport?
Australian Citizens – No (however they are the preferred method of identification), but you will need valid photographic identification.
Non-Australian Citizens or Foreign Passport Holders – Yes, for more information, please click here.
3. Can I connect to the WIFI at my accommodation?
Norfolk Island has 4G coverage however at times you may not be able to use the Internet. Most accommodation properties have a “HotSpot” on their premises. HotSpots work similarly to wifi enabling access when you’re in wifi range. Additional HotSpots are located throughout town and at various places on the Island which will also provide you internet when in range. HotSpot cards are available from Norfolk Island Telecom and a variety of stores when you arrive on the Island.
4. Do I need a car?
Most holiday packages we offer already include a hire car. However, if car hire is not already included in your package, we strongly recommend hiring one. Although Norfolk Island is a small island, there is no public transport and the island is very hilly. Hiring a car will give you the freedom to explore and tour the island as you please. The only exception to this is if you are travelling on a fully escorted tour that already includes transport to all tours and activities on the holiday itinerary.

March: 20°C – 24°C // April: 18°C – 22°C
