Nauru Travel Information

The Basics

Local Customs

Nauruan social values are largely family-based, with respect and deference being shown to elders. Social mores are also bolstered by a strong Christian ethos, and visitors should not be surprised to hear prayers at most public gatherings. Nauru's social etiquette has been increasingly influenced by that of Australia, and so western tourists to the island nation should find most of the basic forms of social interaction quite familiar.

Duty Free

Travellers to Nauru age 16 and older may import up to 200 cigarettes and 500g tobacco. Those 21 and older may import two litres of liquor. Firearms, explosives, drugs, weapons and pornographic materials are prohibited.
