We give necessary and sufficient conditions for a $d$–dimensional Lévy process $({\bf X}_t)_{t\ge 0}$ to be in the matrix normalised Feller (stochastic compactness) classes $FC$ and $FC_0$ as $t\downarrow 0$. This extends earlier results of the authors concerning convergence of a Lévy process in $\Bbb{R} ^d$ to normality, as the time parameter tends to 0. It also generalises and transfers to the Lévy case classical results of Feller and Griffin concerning real- and vector-valued random walks. The process $({\bf X}_t)$ and its quadratic variation matrix together constitute a matrix-valued Lévy process, and, in a further extension, we show that the condition derived for the process itself also guarantees the stochastic compactness of the combined matrix-valued process. This opens the way to further investigations regarding self-normalised processes.
