Travel to Norfolk Island in a COVID-19 Environment
This page will be updated with information and changes to travel restrictions or requirements as provided by Norfolk Island EMT. We recommend regularly checking in for the latest news about travel to Norfolk Island, however it is each travellers responsibility to ensure they obtain updated home border requirements and information prior to travelling
From April 1st, 2022, the requirement to obtain an Entry Permit to travel to Norfolk Island has been removed.
However, if you are travelling to the island for a holiday or work it is strongly recommended that you still undertake a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) for COVID-19 within 48 hours of departing and if this is positive do not travel to the island. It is also recommended that you undertake a further RAT within 24 hours of arrival.
The island has very limited health facilities compared with the mainland and particularly if you are elderly, unvaccinated or with a comorbidity and become infected with COVID-19 you will strain these facilities. There remains a mandatory requirement to report a positive result to either PCR or RAT for COVID-19 to the Norfolk Island Health and Residential Aged Care Service (NIHRACS) whilst on the island. This will result in self-isolation at your own cost for seven (7) days.
