Important changes to Smartraveller are coming. Our new Smartraveller website will be launched in November. It will include a simpler system for getting travel advice updates and a new approach to registration.
Travellers have told us what they want most from Smartraveller is timely travel advice. We’ve listened, and we’re working on a subscription service that will deliver the latest updates to your inbox and SMS critical alerts in a crisis.
As part of the update we no longer ask Australians to register their travel before departure.
From November, Smartraveller’s registration system will activate only when there’s a crisis overseas.
The service we provide to Australians in difficulty overseas is not changing.
You’re still welcome to register your travel with Smartraveller until November.
As always, we encourage Australians overseas to stay in touch with friends and family and let them know you’re safe.
If you need immediate assistance, you can call the Consular Emergency Centre on +61 2 6261 3305 from overseas or 1300 555 135 from within Australia.
