As we continue to adjust to living with COVID, from 13 August 2022, the declared State of Emergency for the Cocos Keeling Islands and Christmas Island will no longer be in effect. 

 

From 13 August, there will also be a scaling back for mask-wearing requirements, masks will now only be required to be worn when on public transport and at the health services on the Cocos Keeling Islands and Christmas Island. 

 

While masks are no longer mandated, we encourage everyone to make their own decisions based on individual risk and safety. 

 

These changes are based on the current COVID situation in the Indian Ocean Territories (IOT) and Australia. 

 

Effective 1 August 2022, travellers to the IOTs are no longer required to complete an application and seek approval to travel to the IOT. 

 

Travellers are strongly encouraged to undertake a rapid antigen test prior to their travel to the IOT, and again on the third day after arrival. Travellers are required to report any positive test results while on island to the IOT Health Services - (Cocos Keeling Islands: West Island 9162 6655, Home Island 9162 7609 and Christmas Island: 9164 8333). Travellers will no longer be required to provide evidence of negative tests to the Office of the Administrator.
