Determine your eligibility for travel

To determine your eligibility for travel, please refer to the following conditions and requirements for Norfolk Island:

From April 1st, 2022, the requirement to obtain an Entry Permit to travel to Norfolk Island has been removed.

Tests are no longer required, however, if you are traveling to the island it is strongly recommended that you still undertake a Rapid Antigen Test (RAT) for COVID-19 within 48 hours of departing and if the test 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 Australia 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. The requirement for unvaccinated travelers to the island to undertake self-isolation is also removed.

Quarantine required for some travelers.

Residents from Queensland, Western Australia, South Australia, Tasmania, and Northern Territory are currently allowed to enter Norfolk Island without self-isolation – as long as they have not traveled from any declared COVID-19 hotspots.

From 1 December 2021, residents from New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory, and Victoria will be allowed to enter Norfolk Island – as long as their residential state has reached an 80% double vaccination rate.

A Norfolk Island Entry Pass is required for all travel to our island. Just fill out and submit an application 24 to 72 hours before your departure. An application is required for each traveler, including children. (http://www.norfolkisland.gov.nf/COVID-19-travel-information-and-entry-pass)

PCR testing 72 hours before arrival for vaccinated returning resident’s and essential workers from NSW, Victoria, and the ACT.

Currently fully vaccinated returning resident’s and essential workers from NSW, Victoria and the ACT must self-isolate until returning a negative PCR test and released by NIHRACS. This may take up to 7 days.

To reduce this self-isolation period, it has been agreed that fully vaccinated returning resident’s and essential workers from NSW, Victoria and the ACT can get a PCR test done on the mainland up to 72 hours prior to traveling to the island. On arrival they will need to show proof of vaccination status along with the PCR negative test result and have no COVID-19 symptoms. NIHRACS will then provide a self-isolation release.

If you are an unvaccinated or partially vaccinated returning resident or essential worker, you will be required to self-isolate at home for 14 days or until released by NIHRACS.

-International returning resident’s and essential workers.

From November 1 NSW is allowing fully vaccinated returning Australian residents to return from overseas without having to undergo quarantine. They must provide proof of vaccination status and have a COVID-19 test after arrival.

If they spend 14 days in NSW before traveling to the island, they will need to have a PCR test 72 hours prior to traveling to the island and providing they have no symptoms will not have to undergo further self-isolation on the island. If they spend less than 14 days after arriving from overseas in NSW and travel to the island, they will have to self-isolate for 14 days or until released by NIHRACS.

From 1 December 2021, visitors will be required to provide proof of vaccination status when completing the Norfolk Island Entry Permit.

Fully vaccinated visitors will not be required to undergo self-isolation on arrival.

Moderna, Pfizer/BioNTech, Janssen (Johnson & Johnson), Oxford/AstraZeneca, Covaxin, CoronaVac

The requirement to wear a facial mask when indoors at most locations has been removed, this includes inside workplaces, bars, cafes, restaurants and retail outlets. However, you will still be required to wear a facial mask at the NIHRACS Facility, Residential Aged Care, Disability Accommodation, airport, planes and on public transport (such as tourist buses)
