Welcome to the forum Iris!
I'd like to add on, even if you have allergies, you still might not be allergic to a cockatiel. The only way you'll know is if you spend time around them. I personally have a lot of allergies, including all kinds of pollen, dust, and animal fur.


However, I am only very minorly allergic to tiels. No nose issues, just when there's a build up of dust my skin can get mildly itchy.



If the dust is of any concern, I am constantly using an air filter. Make sure you get one without an ionizer!!!
Also, consider putting some bird safe house plants in the areas you intend to hang out with the tiel to help imrpove the air quality.
