Make sure your passport is valid and you have all the appropriate visas before heading overseas.
Carry extra passport photos in case your passport is lost/stolen and you need to replace it while away.
Don’t travel with lots of flashy jewellery. Chances are nothing will happen, but why risk it?
Make copies of your passport, credit cards and other travel documents. Keep one copy safe and leave a copy with someone at home.
Register your travel and contact details online before travelling overseas, or at the local Australian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate once you arrive, so the Government can contact you in an emergency.
If you’re heading through an airport, pack your toiletries in a clear bag for easy security checks.
Relax. You might as well. Delays happen, luggage gets lost. Like it or not, it’s all part of the experience.
