Due to the volume of disrupted bookings we are working through our call centre phone hours are currently reduced to 9am – 3pm Monday to Friday.
We apologise should this cause any inconvenience. Much appreciated, from the team at Oxley Travel.
Please note: Lord Howe Island accommodation is very limited through to the end of July 2022 & September 2022 – April 2023. September/October 2022 school holidays are booked out.
Below is the current situation for:
Lord Howe Island: Please refer to Lord Howe Island Tourism Covid-19 Q&A page for more information on Lord Howe Island’s Covid-19 Policy. Visitors to the island may be required to be double vaccinated for certain tourist accommodation.
Norfolk Island: 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.
For any questions about the COVID-19 response on Norfolk Island, please visit the Norfolk Island Regional Council website.
