Travel Alerts

Australians take around 10 million trips overseas each year. To help them avoid difficulties while travelling, the Australian Government provides travel advice on more than 175 destinations with an aim to help Aussies make informed travel decisions. The travel alerts highlight the threats 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.

Additionally, whether you are travelling overseas for leisure or business, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) recommends you subscribe to receive the latest travel advice updates for your destination. You can do that at the Smartraveller website before you leave Australia.
