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 June 2022 & September 2022 – April 2023. September/October 2022 school holidays are booked out.
Below is the current situation for:
Lord Howe Island: From 15 December 2021, visitors to the island may be required to be double vaccinated for certain tourist accommodation. A COVID declaration sheet will be provided to all travellers at approximately 3 weeks prior to their travel date. This must be completed and sent directly onto the accommodation in which you are staying within 72 hours of your arrival.
Please refer to Lord Howe Island Tourism Covid-19 Q&A page for more information on Lord Howe Island’s Covid-19 Policy.
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.
Note: We strongly advise travellers to keep up to date with border/travel restrictions in the state you reside.
