Travel Insurance Tips

Travel insurance covers the policyholder for insurable events that may occur before or during travel, such as trip cancellation/interruption, medical expenses, baggage damage/theft and more.

Regardless of whether you travel overseas regularly, infrequently or on a once-in-a-lifetime trip, travel insurance is very important.

The cost of travel insurance is based on the type of cover requested, the age of the insured, the destination of travel, length of stay and any pre-existing medical conditions. It is important to obtain the right type of travel insurance to suit your individual requirements.

Important points to note when choosing travel insurance:

  • Always read the product disclosure statement and ensure that you understand exactly what your travel insurance covers. Travel insurance is not unlimited. It may not cover you for cancellation or change to travel plans.
  • Clarify any policy issues directly with the insurer.
  • Ensure that medical cover is adequate for possible expenses in the country you are going to visit. In some parts of the world medical costs can be very expensive.
  • Ensure you declare any pre-existing medical conditions you may have.
  • Generally, cover for luggage and personal belongings is limited and expensive items such as cameras, laptops and/or jewellery may have a per-item limit.

Afghanistan

23 Jun 2022 22:00:00 AEST

On 22 June 2022, a magnitude 5.9 earthquake hit the central region of Afghanistan impacting Paktika, Khost and Nangarhar Provinces. There are heavy casualties and significant damage to homes and infrastructure. If you're in the affected area follow instructions from local authorities.

The situation in Afghanistan remains highly volatile. There continues to be an ongoing and very high threat of terrorist attack throughout Afghanistan, including at Kabul International Airport, and at land border crossings. We continue to advise against all travel to and within Afghanistan. The US Government issued a security alert on 11 October advising citizens to avoid travelling to the Serena Hotel and the surrounding vicinity because of security threats at the Serena Hotel.

Limited flights from Afghanistan to other countries have resumed, but these may change or be suspended at short notice. You should contact airlines or travel agents directly for current information. DFAT doesn't provide information on the safety of individual commercial airlines or flight paths.

Travel throughout Afghanistan is extremely dangerous. Violent incidents could occur across the country. Some land borders are closed to travellers seeking to cross from Afghanistan and some border crossing points that are open are at risk of terrorist attack. You need to carefully consider the risks should you attempt to leave by any route. The Australian Government can't offer advice on the safety of travelling to departure points. Any travel options you pursue are taken at your own risk. You’re responsible for your own safety and that of your family. Take all extra precautions for your safety. Stay in a safe place. Make contingency plans to leave when it’s safe to do so.

Our ability to provide consular assistance to Australians in Afghanistan is severely limited. Australians in need of consular assistance should contact the Australian Government 24-hour Consular Emergency Centre on 1300 555 135 in Australia or +61 2 6261 3305 outside Australia.

We continue to advise:

Do not travel to Afghanistan due to the extremely dangerous security situation and the very high threat of terrorist attack.

Some airlines may also require a Rapid Antigen Test on the day of travel.

Ongoing response measures can include mandatory regular COVID-19 testing and the requirement to show negative COVID-19 results to gain access to some venues and other public areas. Positive cases are subject to the requirements of local authorities and may result in transfer to a designated medical or quarantine facility or additional testing. Further COVID-19 outbreaks throughout China are possible and countermeasures including flight suspensions and re-routing may be imposed with little or no warning. Stay informed of local conditions, particularly if you intend to travel within China.

As previously advised, authorities have detained foreigners on grounds of 'endangering national security'. Australians may be at risk of arbitrary detention.

In March 2022, gunmen attacked a train travelling between Abuja and Kaduna, killing several passengers and abducting others. Avoid intercity transport by road and rail.

We continue to advise do not travel to other parts of Nigeria due to the very high risk to your safety. If despite our advice you undertake travel within Nigeria, research routes and get professional security advice and support before departing.

We advise:

Reconsider your need to travel to Nigeria overall due to high threats of terrorist attack and kidnapping, the volatile security situation, possible violent civil unrest and high levels of violent crime.

Russia

22 Apr 2022 22:00:00 AEST

Do not travel to Russia due to the security environment and military conflict with Ukraine. If you’re in Russia, leave immediately using the limited commercial options available or private means if it’s safe to do so. The Australian Government has authorised the voluntary departure of dependants of Australian Embassy staff in Moscow. The security situation could deteriorate further with little warning. The Russian parliament has passed laws that severely inhibit free speech related to the current situation, imposing restrictions on the publishing and distribution of information related to the Russian armed forces and any military operations. Remain vigilant and avoid any protests or demonstrations and commenting publicly on political developments. Non-participating bystanders can draw scrutiny from security forces and have been detained. Given the substantial police presence and mass arrests, you should avoid demonstrations and any demonstration-related activities.

Russian authorities may adopt a more negative attitude towards foreigners in Russia. Russian authorities may enforce local laws in an arbitrary manner. You may be interrogated without cause by Russian officials, and may become a victim of harassment, mistreatment, and extortion. The US Government issued travel advice on 29 March advising that Russian security services have arrested US citizens on spurious charges, singled out US citizens in Russia for detention and/or harassment, denied them fair and transparent treatment, and have convicted them in secret trials and/or without presenting credible evidence. The US Government warns that Russian officials may unreasonably delay consular assistance to detained US citizens.

Conscription occurs regularly in Russia. The government may subject males it regards as Russian to mandatory conscription, regardless of any other citizenship held. Conscription in Russia occurs semi-annually and, conscripts typically serve one year. The first conscription of 2022 will take place from 1 April to 15 July.

If you’re in Russia, register your whereabouts on the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade's registration portal for Australian citizens in Russia – see the 'Safety' section for details on how to register. Keep your registration details up to date to ensure we’re aware of your situation and can provide you with the latest information. Continue to monitor Smartraveller for updates. If, despite our advice, you remain in Russia you may be affected by shortages of essential products and services.

Several security incidents have occurred in the Belgorod region of Russia bordering Ukraine, including an explosion at a fuel depot. The security situation in the region could deteriorate at short notice. You shouldn't attempt to travel to the Russia-Ukraine border or cross into Ukraine from Russia.

On 11 April 2022, the EU announced that 21 Russian owned airlines were banned from flying in EU airspace due to safety concerns. DFAT doesn't provide information on the safety of individual commercial airlines or flight paths. If you’re flying domestically or internationally, you should research your aviation provider.

Commercial travel routes between Russia and Europe have been impacted by measures taken in response to military action in Ukraine. A number of Russian airports are now closed to the public. The train service between St Petersburg and Helsinki is suspended. Bus services to Finland are operating. If you’re planning to depart Russia, confirm with your transport operator that services are still operating. There are reports of non-Russian credit and debit cards being declined in Russia. Be prepared with alternate means of payment should your cards be declined.

If you decide to stay in Russia, review your personal security plans. You’re responsible for your own safety and that of your family. Make sure your travel documents are up to date. If you have significant concerns for your welfare, or that of another Australian, contact the Consular Emergency Centre on 1300 555 135 in Australia or +61 2 6261 3305 outside Australia.

We continue to advise:

Do not travel to Russia overall due to the security environment and military conflict with Ukraine.
