Essential Travel Information

Make sure your passport is valid for at least 6 months (from the date you arrive back into the country.)

Have you checked if you need a visa/s for the country/s you are travelling to?

Is a must! Do you have yours yet? Remember if you can’t afford travel insurance, you can’t afford to travel!

Make a copy of all your travel documents to take with you. Leave a copy with family or friends as well.

Ensure The 50+ Travel Club has your overseas contact details so they can be advised to the airline/s. Register your details with the Department of Foreign Affairs (DFAT) at www.dfat.gov.au 

Ensure you have all medications you require packed into your hand luggage.

Ensure you have all necessary immunisations and evidence of such if required.

Ensure you are aware of weight limits for your flight and that you adhere to restrictions for packing liquids, aerosols and gels.

Be aware of items possibly restricted in the country/s you are travelling to and also when you return to Australia.

Ensure you have organised foreign currency and/or access to funds whilst travelling.
