New Australian Government Smartraveller Website

For our Australian MANZA members and their friends please take note of the following information received from the Australian High Commission regarding an update to the very important and useful Smartraveller service.

On 21 November the Australian Government launched the new and improved Smartraveller website (www.smartraveller.gov.au).

Smartraveller has the latest, authoritative travel advice so you can be informed and prepared about overseas travel. Subscribe to receive travel advice updates – by simply supplying your name and email address – straight to your inbox. Current subscribers will need to re-subscribe to continue to receive updates.

You can now also subscribe to the new SMS service – by supplying your mobile number – to receive critical alerts in the event of a crisis overseas.

In a crisis, Smartraveller will activate a crisis page on its website. It will make it easier for you or someone you know to contact the Australian Government if you need help. It will supplement the consular emergency hotline.

Visit www.smartraveller.gov.au to subscribe or connect with Smartraveller on Facebook and Twitter.
