All Australians travelling overseas, whatever the reasons and however long you'll be away, are encouraged to register with the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade before travel. You can register on-line or in person at any Australian Embassy, High Commission or Consulate. The information you provide will help us to contact you in an emergency - whether it is a natural disaster, civil disturbance or a family issue. It may also be used to pass other information to you such as updated Travel Advice and notice of elections.
Information about risks overseas is contained in the Department's travel advisories. These and other travel tips to help you better prepare for your overseas trip can be found at smartraveller.gov.au You can also subscribe to automatically receive email updates each time we change our travel advisories.
