  • Travel Alert: You can only travel to your destination if there is no travel ban in place or if you have an exemption. Also, while a destination has a 'Do Not Travel' warning in place for COVID-19, our policies won't cover a loss arising from COVID-19 in that destination. See the latest government advice at smartraveller.gov.au and health.gov.au, and check our travel insurance alerts.
You can only travel to your destination if there is no travel ban in place or if you have an exemption. Please research the area(s) you are travelling to and read the latest government and health advice.

Check smartraveller.gov.au to see if your planned overseas travel is affected; you can only travel overseas if there is no travel ban in place for your intended destination or if you qualify for an exemption.
