Important changes to Smartraveller are coming 2019
Smartraveller's website will be launched in November 2019. It will include a simpler system for getting travel advice updates and a new approach to registration.
Smartraveller is working on a subscription service that will deliver the latest updates to traveller's inbox and SMS critical alerts in a crisis.
As part of the update Smartraveller will no longer ask Australians to register their travel before departure.
From November, Smartraveller’s registration system will activate only when there’s a crisis overseas.
The service provided to Australians during times of difficulty overseas has not changed.
We still welcome you to register your travel with Smartraveller until November.
As always, we encourage Australians in Samoa and overseas to stay in touch with friends and family and let them know you’re safe.
If you need immediate assistance, you can call the Consular Emergency Centre on +61 2 6261 3305 from overseas or 1300 555 135 from within Australia.
