Infectious disease risks overseas

There is an active COVID-19 global pandemic. For information on the impact to travel, visit the Smartraveller COVID-19 portal, and read the travel advice for your destination.

When you go overseas, you may be exposed to a wide range of infectious diseases, and you have a higher risk of contracting infectious diseases in some destinations. Before you go, learn about the health risks in your destination. See your health provider early so you can get vaccinated and take other steps to reduce the risk of getting sick while you're away.
