Travel Check List

Travel Documents

  • Please check all your travel documentations carefully and contact your travel agencies immediately if you have any queries or problems
  • It’s a good iea to have separate copies of all your documents (including passports) to carry and leave a copy of your itinerary with a relative or friend at home

Airline Reconfirmation

  • Although most airlines do not require you to reconfirm, we strongly recommend checking your flight schedule at least 24 hours prior to departure. Airlines have the right to change flight times and dates without notice


  • Please check that your passport and visas are in order. Most countries require a minimum of 6 months’ validity on your passport. If you are travelling on a non-Australian passport then you must carry correct re-entry documentation.

Baggage Allowances and Regulations

  • We recommend that you check your baggage allowance carefully as you may incur an additional charge for excess baggage.
  • Please check your airline baggage safety notices that detail items that cannont be carrid or only carried in checked baggage. Strict regulations are in place regarding the carrying of liquids, aerosols and gels in hand luggage on all international flights into and out of Australia. Please check with your travel agent or airline for further information or refer to the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development and Local Government website
