MY FIRST TIP'S

Top 10 Travel Tips

  1. Have a good time :)
  2. Take out appropriate travel insurance to cover hospital treatment, medical evacuation and any activities, including adventure sports, in which you plan to participate.
  3. Before travelling overseas register your contact details online or at the local  embassy, high commission or consulate once you arrive, so we can contact you in an emergency.
  4. Obey the law. Consular assistance cannot override local laws, even where local laws appear harsh or unjust.
  5. Check to see if you require visas for the country or countries you are visiting or transiting Be aware that a visa does not guarantee entry.
  6. Make copies of your passport details, insurance policy, travellers cheques, visas and credit card numbers. Carry one copy in a separate place to the originals and leave a copy with someone at home.
  7. Check with a health professional for information on recommended vaccinations or other precautions and find out about overseas laws on travelling with medicines.
  8. Ensure your passport has at least six months’ validity from your planned date of return.  Some countries will refuse entry on arrival and some airlines will not allow passengers to board flights if their passport does not meet this requirement.  Before travelling, you should contact the Embassy or high commision of each country you intend to visit to confirm the entry requirements.
  9. Leave a copy of your travel itinerary with someone at home and keep in regular contact with friends and relatives while overseas.
  10. Before departing check whether you are regarded as a national of the country you intend to visit. Research whether holding dual nationality has any implications for your travel.
