Amnesty International says it's heartened by Nauru's invitation to international bodies to go to the island and check out its treatment of asylum seekers and refugees.
Nauru issued the invitation during its human rights review at the United Nations on Tuesday.
Amnesty's Pacific campaigner Rebecca Emery says Amnesty has not been able to get in to check out the situation around asylum seeker processing but will now apply.
She says the group would like to see how policies like the ban on social media are working.
"On the face of it we'd be concerned it's an excessive and disproportionate restriction but we are keen to have a closer look at the situation that Nauru described in the UPR review for ourselves to see what is actually happening with women and children in Nauru."
Rebecca Emery says Amnesty is encouraged by the steps taken by Nauru since its last review.
