Due the current international travel bans the demand for travel to Lord Howe Island & Norfolk Island is extremely high. To help manage the volume of online enquiries we have reduced our call centre phone hours to 9am – 3pm Monday to Friday.

We apologise should this cause any inconvenience. Much appreciated from the team at Oxley Travel.

Below is the current situation for:

Lord Howe Island: 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.

Norfolk Island*: Due to the high number of exposure sites and the seeding risk associated with this variant of the virus it has been decided to introduce a travel restriction to the island for people from the Greater Melbourne area. Travellers from the Greater Melbourne area will not be granted an entry permit to the island from midnight tonight (June 3rd, 2021) until June 24th ,2021. The restriction will be reviewed on the 17th of June. Returning residents who have been in the Greater Melbourne area in the last 14 days will be granted an Entry Pass but will be required to spend 14 days in self-isolation on the island. The travel restriction does not extend to regional Victoria or persons who have transited through Melbourne airport on the way to the island. Transit means that you have not left the airport precinct and have spent 24 hours or less in the precinct area. This requirement is in addition to the requirement for travellers to check currently listed public exposure sites and isolate at home or their accommodation and contact NIHRACS for further advice. With the current Victorian outbreak exposure sites in southern NSW have been listed in the last few days. It is important that travellers to the island check these NSW exposure sites. Visitors must apply for an entry pass 72 – 24 hours prior to departure. Keep up-to-date with travel restrictions and apply for an entry pass here.
