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 1st May 2023 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.



Whilst COVID Restrictions have eased across the world, they can still differ vastly from Country to Country.

We suggest checking with Smartraveller  for to date information on regulations around the world



Some countries may still require proof of Covid Vaccination.

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

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

Some Countries still require either a PCR (mainly China) 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 



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


A Gentle Reminder 

Our Industry was hit harder than any other, it is still in recovery.
A lot of staff (skilled staff) had no choice but to leave their job.
Along with Travel Agents, Airports, airlines, hotels and all the personnel in-between are doing the best they can with this huge demand for travel we are seeing at the moment.
We remind you to be patient, be kind, be prepared and keep an open mind. Travel is a luxury and a privilege.
We will always try and help you the best we can if your plans are disrupted.



If you are unwell in the slightest or have been in contact with anyone who has been unwell then please do not enter our store

When masks are not mandatory if you would like us to wear one during your visit please just let us know and we are more than happy to.

We welcome you to speak with us for more information
