COVID INFORMATION HUB

This page is designed to keep you up to date with the latest COVID rules and regulations for

Domestic & International Travel and also when Visiting our Office.

 

The information below was updated on the 31st May 2022 and is aimed at Victorian Residents that are Australian Passport Holders or Permanent Residents.

Please always check relevant government and airline websites for the most up-to-date information,

We, of course, are here to advise as best we can, however ultimately this is the responsibility of the traveller

Things can change very quickly and we hold no responsibility if you do not check and comply with specific regulations or if entry/travel is denied.

 

INTERNATIONAL TRAVEL

COVID Entry Restrictions are very different from Country to Country.

We find these sites to be helpful in up to date information on regulations around the world

You will also need the following when traveling to most countries overseas.

INTERNATIONAL VACCINATION CERTIFICATE

This is different from the one you use domestically here in Australia.

International Vaccination Certificate – Click this link to find out how to get yours.

 

Pre Departure Testing for inbound travel to Australia is no longer required from the 18th April 2022.

 

You will still need to complete the “DPD” Digital Passenger Declaration prior to returning to Australia

Australian Digital Declaration (Inbound) 

Passengers are now able to download the app via the App Store (Apple) or Google Play store (Android).  The app uses the camera on a mobile device to ‘read’ the biodata page of a passport and populate it directly into the personal details of their declaration.

It allows passengers to scan the QR code on their vaccination certificate to populate details of vaccinations received.

 

If you need to take a test prior to travel to your Destination/s 

Some Countries still require either a PCR or Supervised Rapid Test prior to travel.

We can recommend Australian Clinical Labs for testing here in Australia

For the quickest (and cheapest) tests we also recommend going to Histopath at Melbourne Airport 

 

OTHER

  • With Covid tracing regulations, we may now need to add more information in advance to all your flight bookings including email address, residential postcode and mobile numbers.  We will do this automatically unless advised otherwise by you at the time of booking.
  • Ensure your Travel Insurance has cover for COVID-related incidents some countries require proof of Covid Medical Cover for entry.
  • It is recommended you download any Contact Tracing Apps for the state/country you are traveling to and your specific Airline/s Travel App.
  • Check-In times are the airport can take quite a bit longer so please allow 3 hours for International Departures

Reminder – Things can change very quickly and we hold no responsibility if you do not check and comply with specific regulations or if entry is denied.
