Travel Information

Smart Traveller

It is your responsibility to visit the Australian Government's travel advisory and consular assistance service. Visit http://smartraveller.gov.au.

Check whether a VISA is required for the countries you are visiting, as well as for any travel warnings, health and vaccine requirements.



  • Australian passports are valid for travel into and out of Australia regardless of the length of remaining validity. An Australian passport remains valid until the expiry date. However, it is the right of any country to control entry into their borders and this is usually done via visas or ensuring sufficient validity remains on the visitor’s travel document. Entry requirements are decided by foreign governments and are not something that the Australian Government can influence. You need to ensure that your passport has adequate validity to meet the entry requirements of the countries you intend to visit (or transit). Some countries require travellers to have at least six months validity remaining on their passports beyond the period of intended stay, and immigration authorities may refuse entry if you arrive with less than this. Airlines and passenger shipping lines may refuse to carry you if your passport has inadequate validity. Before travel you should contact the Embassy, High Commission or Consular representativeof all the countries you will be travelling to identify each country’s passport validity requirements. If you are unsure, it is safest to renew yourpassport prior to travelling.
