Smartraveller’s travel tips for your future overseas adventures:
  • Research and confirm the visa and entry requirements for your destination. Reach out to the relevant embassy or consulate for up-to-date information.
  • Consult a doctor to learn about recommended vaccinations and health precautions for your destination. Check your medication’s legality and requirements.
  • Don’t forget your travel insurance, and make sure you read the fine print on your policy.
  • Be aware of how dual nationality may affect your travel plans and consular services.
  • Respect the laws of the country you’re visiting, as they may differ from those in Australia.
  • Be mindful of the culture and places of significance in the regions you explore. This includes wearing appropriate clothing at places such as temples.
  • Use social media responsibly, as posting sensitive content or comments on political issues can have consequences in some countries.
  • If travelling alone, take extra precautions, such as using official transport and not disclosing that you’re travelling solo.
  • Keep your bags and belongings close; don’t leave them on the ground or the back of a seat. This gives thieves a perfect opportunity to steal them.
  • Leave a copy of your travel itinerary and insurance details with someone back in Australia.
  • If you don’t already have a passport, allow six weeks to renew or apply.
