Passport, Visa and Immunisation requirements for your journey

It is vital that you check passport and visa requirements as well as any immunisation guidelines for the countries you are travelling to (and through!) as early as possible as processing necessary documentation can take some time. As a starting point, you should ensure your passport has at least 6 months validity beyond your length of stay as this is now a mandatory requirement for many countries around the world.

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office website has up-to-the-minute travel advice for your destination and will offer guidance on everything from health and immunisation to passport and visa requirements. You will even find handy tips on local laws and customs as well as crucial information on currency and navigating through your arrival airport.

ESTA’s and ETA’s can also be obtained for a lower fee by applying directly with the US and Australian governments respectively, however they won’t provide live assistance or automatic notification once the visa has been approved.
