TOP FIVE TRAVEL TIPS

Central and North Burnett Times - - BURNETT& BEYOND -

STAY in con­tact with friends and fam­ily back home and give them a copy of your travel itin­er­ary so they know where you are.

CHECK the lat­est travel ad­vice for your des­ti­na­tion and subscribe to re­ceive free email no­ti­fi­ca­tions each time the travel ad­vice for your des­ti­na­tion is up­dated.

TAKE out com­pre­hen­sive travel in­sur­ance and en­sure it cov­ers you for the places you plan to visit and the things you plan to do.

FIND out about tak­ing med­i­ca­tion over­seas – cer­tain medicines aren’t al­lowed in some coun­tries.

MAKE sure your pass­port has at least six months’ va­lid­ity from your planned date of re­turn to Aus­tralia. Carry ex­tra pass­port pho­tos in case your pass­port is lost or stolen and you need to re­place it while you’re away.

CHECK to see if you’re re­garded as a national of the coun­try you plan to visit and whether dual na­tion­al­ity will have any im­pli­ca­tions for your travel plans.
