Travel Alerts

Australian's take around 10 million trips overseas each year. To help Australia's avoid difficulties whilst travelling the Australian Government provides travel advice on more than 170 destinations. The aim is to help Aussies make informed travel decisions. The travel alerts highlight the threats that you could face at your destination, whether related to security, safety, health, local laws, or natural disasters. They also highlight areas that are clearly not safe for travel.

You should use this destination intelligence when planning your holiday to stay informed and travel safely!
