Positive cases of COVID-19 on Norfolk Island
To reduce pressure on the health system during the current Omicron outbreak, EMNI has adopted a series of requirements for those travelling to the island. These are compulsory for everyone, and they are different to the requirements that are currently in place for most interstate travel on the mainland. It is important that all travellers to the island comply with the directions; failure to do so may result in penalties.
All travellers to the island are required to submit a Travel Entry Pass, this is available at link https://norfolkau.viewpointcloud.com/categories/1083/record-types/6435(link is external)
Travellers must also complete a COVID test involving:
- a negative PCR test result in the 72 hours prior to arrival on island
- a negative Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) in the 48 hours prior to arrival and a negative RAT test undertaken within 24 hours of arrival on the island.
If you test positive for COVID, you are required to report this to the NIHRACS, phone 22091.
Information for Sporting Clubs
Sporting clubs wishing to resume regular activity, or host events, are required to submit a COVID safe plan to the Incident Controller for review.
The key elements of your plan must include safe facility management, hygiene practices, attendance registers and limiting shared equipment as much as possible. You can find more information on Sport Australia’s website www.sportaus.gov.au/covid-safe-sport(link is external)
Norfolk Island Travel Pass
Every person intending to travel to Norfolk Island must complete and obtain an online Entry Pass 24 to 72 hours prior to flight departure via this link: https://norfolkau.viewpointcloud.com/categories/1083
The application process is an automated program designed to screen applicants via an online declaration, and identify high-risk travellers who will be denied entry to Norfolk Island. The screening will also provide valuable data to track inbound travellers, should a positive case of COVID-19 be identified.
The Entry Pass will be automatically and instantly approved, provided the applicant is low-risk, and eligible to travel to Norfolk Island under any restrictions in place at the time of application.
Applicants requiring urgent Entry Pass screening (within 24 hours of flight departure) will need to contact the Incident Controller directly to accelerate the process. Phone: +6723 22222 Email: IO-Norfolk-Island@afp.gov.au.
If an individual seeking to enter Norfolk Island is a child or a person with impaired capacity, a parent or guardian may complete this form on their behalf.

You will be asked to enter details of the individual in a later step of the application form.
