Travel Advice

  • The Federal Government has raised its travel advice for Australians to Level 4, 'do not travel overseas', regardless of the destination. All non-essential travel should be avoided.

  • If you're already overseas and wish to return to Australia, the Federal Government recommends you do so as soon as possible by commercial means.

  • The travel ban has been updated to prevent any non-residents or non-citizens from travelling to Australia. The ban is effective from 9pm Friday 20 March. 

  • Australian citizens and residents and their immediate family members are allowed to return, but will be required to undertake mandatory 14-day self-isolation at designated facilities (e.g. a hotel).

  • All UNSW travel, both domestic and international, is no longer permitted until further notice.

  • Any students or staff who choose to travel internationally at this time will not be supported by the University or covered by UNSW’s insurance policy.

  • Any students or staff who incur costs for unapproved travel will not be reimbursed by the University.

  • You can find the latest government advice via Smart Traveller. Regularly updated advice is also available on International SOS.
