The secret to a great holiday is preparation.

Australia’s Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) provides up-to-date information about the risks you might face overseas. This information can help you to make well-informed decisions about when and where to travel, and whether it’s safe to go.

DFAT also provides advice on health, money and packing tips, as well as details of overseas Australian embassies and foreign customs. 

With a network of offices in Australia and around the world, DFAT provides assistance to Australians overseas. For the 24-hour Consular Emergency Centre, call +61 2 6261 3305 (outside Australia) or 1300 555 135 (within Australia).

For all the up-to-date information, guidance, news and to register your travel plans, go to the Smart Traveller website.
