      Hi Mitchell,

      I have just taken a look at the advice, and it is still the same. Take a look at Travelbans.org: https://travelbans.org/oceania-australia/solomon-islands/

      While the current date for flights is 31 August, this could be pushed back further. Stay up to date with the latest information from your government travel advisory, and your airline.

      All the best,

    Might I be able to come to Solomon Islands October 1 from USA? I have a reservation for 10 days on Bilikiki.

    I saw that the travel ban has been pushed back to October 24. With no vaccine I suspect that this date will be further revised. With a ticket from BNE and a trip booked on Bilikiki as well, I'm very interested in how this will play out. In all likelihood it will be difficult/impossible to get from the US to BNE given the lockdown in Oz.
