Visa and border entry requirements for international travel

Each destination may have different requirements and it is your responsibility to understand what you need to do for your entire trip, including connecting flights, transit points and your return journey. Failure to meet these requirements may result in denied boarding at the airport. 

  • Check if you need to apply for any entry visas or border declaration forms and what timeframe applications need to be completed in. 
  • Ensure that your passport is valid for at least six months beyond your intended travel.
  • Protect yourself from unexpected medical costs by purchasing travel insurance with COVID-19 cover.
