Are Australians allowed to visit Nauru as tourists?

I heard media reports a while ago about restrictions on Australians and New Zealanders. Neither smartraveller.gov.au nor New Zealand's Safe Travel issue travel advice for Nauru, and I couldn't visit Nauru's page on visa requirements. The Google cache didn't have a lot of information.

Wikipedia says Australians are allowed to apply for a visa, but I don't know how current the information is.

    So all the official agencies are telling you it's ok to go but you're still unsure because of a rumour ? Where did you even read about this ?

  • @blackbird the "official agencies" aren't saying anything.

Australians can visit Nauru as tourists, as stated in Timatic, the "bible of Airlines"

It also says you don't need a visa, but can apply for an approval letter by e-mail at [email protected]
