Overseas travel

UNSW follows Australian Government advice on overseas travel. Details can be found on the smartraveller website.

Travel will not be approved for any international destination with DFAT level 4 restrictions (Do Not Travel).

For information on UNSW travel, visit MyTravel@UNSW and read the UNSW Travel Policy.  

All  travel bookings must be made via the MyTravel@UNSW portal. 

Interstate travel

A cautious approach should be taken in deciding whether to travel and should consider the potential for lockdowns and self-isolation at short notice, including any cost implications for your local budget if government supervised quarantine is mandated. If a public health order is announced while you are traveling, you must attempt to return home before it takes effect, providing it is safe to do so.

All travel must comply with current Federal and State/Territory government travel guidelines.

You must obtain pre-approval from your line manager, team leader or supervisor before booking any travel. 

All  travel bookings must be made via the MyTravel@UNSW portal. 

Intrastate travel

Travelling within the state or territory in which you ordinarily reside is acceptable, providing it complies with all government public health orders that are in place at the time. If a public health order is announced while you are traveling, you must attempt to return home before it takes effect, providing it is safe to do so.

Travel for fieldwork

Travel for fieldwork requires the development and approval of a specific plan for that activity. Please consult your Supervisor or Team Leader in the first instance.

All  travel bookings must be made via the MyTravel@UNSW portal.
