Fly Safe

When travelling overseas, it's your responsibility to take care of your safety and wellbeing. We recommend using Smartraveller for official travel advice to help you understand the risks and prevent problems while overseas.

Some countries have lower safety and security standards than Australia which can be a risk for overseas travellers. Before you go, research the safety and hygiene standards for airlines, airports and destinations you plan on travelling to. 

Airlines, airports and destinations may require you to provide a pre-departure COVID-19 PCR test up to 72 hours prior to travelling, as well as medical forms, arrival declarations and other entry processes. As a guide, The Australian Health Protection Principal Committee (AHPPC) released a statement on safe international travel.

Pre-departure Checklist

Before you go, here's a list of the top things to consider:

Research travel restrictions

Familiarise yourself with COVID-19 entry and exit restrictions in Australia and in your destination. Have contingencies in place in the event your travel is impacted by border closures, curfews or movement restrictions.

Ensure you have a valid passport

Confirm your passport is valid for 6 months from when you plan your trip to end.

Check visa requirements

Get the right visa for the countries you’re visiting or transiting through. Visa conditions change regularly so check the Embassy of the destinations you’ll visit before every trip.

Protect yourself with travel insurance

Get comprehensive travel insurance to cover you and your belongings. Refer below for policies relating to COVID-19 coverage. 

Understand health requirements

Have a health check-up and get informed of vaccination requirements for your destination. Some destinations may need you to provide proof of a negative PCR COVID test, which may incur additional charges. Use our tool above to understand any health requirements relevant to your destination.

Get your COVID Vaccination certificate

Obtain your International COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate from the Australian Government.

Review health and safety measures

Learn about cleanliness measures implemented by your airline, hotel, car and other travel provider to ensure your travelling safely. 

Choose flexible booking policies

Look out for the flexible tag in flight search results and filter your hotel or package search on Webjet for greater flexibility when you book.

Consider transport options

If you’ll drive overseas check out the local traffic laws and practices. You’re likely to need an International Driving Permit (IDP) as well as your Australian driver’s licence.

Travel insurance with COVID-19 cover 

In December 2020, our travel insurance partner, Cover-More, introduced a number of previously unavailable COVID-19 benefits for Australians travelling to New Zealand. Some of these benefits will extend to other overseas countries as the government travel ban and “Do Not Travel” restrictions lift and our borders open.

These COVID-19 ready benefits will apply where there is no ‘Do Not Travel’ advice from the Australian Government Smartraveller website

Some benefits do not apply to claims involving travel on a multi-night cruise.

What cover is provided and the amount of cover available? Refer to the Webjet Travel Insurance COVID-19 Benefits Table to learn more.
