Plan ahead and be prepared before you leave home. Here’s some information to help you with your journey in and out of Sydney Airport.

Passports and visas for international travel

All family members, including infants, need a passport to travel overseas. Please make sure passports and any necessary visas are valid for everyone travelling. Remember you may also need a visa for any transit stops.

Contact your airline or travel agent, or check online to get the latest information for the countries you’ll be visiting.

Your passports must be valid for a period of six months ahead of departure date for most countries.

Health requirements and medication

Please arrange to have all necessary vaccinations well in advance of your departure date. See your GP for more information.

If you or your children take any medication make sure you speak with your GP for advice. You may find individual airports and countries have their own specific restrictions and requirements.
