Get a dental check-up before you leave. It can be quite difficult to get good, affordable dental care while you are travelling so make sure those pearly whites are good before you go.

Book an appointment to see a travel doctor at International Travel vaccination Centre (ITVC) at least 6-8 weeks before you leave. This will help you make sure you are well prepared for your destination and the travel doctor can give you destination specific advice regarding the health risks and vaccinations for you intended destination.

Register your contact details and travel plans with the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (Smart Traveller) so they can contact you or your family in the event of an emergency (such as natural disaster orTerrorism).
