Covid-19 Travel Checklist

What you need to know before travelling

The team at Travelplan are excited about travelling again internationally with confidence. As early preparation for your upcoming trip, if you haven't already, please dust off your passport and don't delay if a renewal is due.

International Covid-19 Vaccination Certificate (ICVC)

Many foreign governments will need evidence of the COVID-19 vaccinations and tests you’ve had before they let you enter. The Australian-issued International COVID-19 Vaccination Certificate (ICVC) is a free and secure way to prove your COVID-19 vaccination history when you travel overseas.

It is a great benefit to have your vaccination confirmation linked to your phone, as well as your passport. To obtain your ICVC, we recommend the method via the 'Express Plus Medicare mobile app'.

Travel Requirements

Before you travel, you must double-check the current rules and how this relates to your circumstances. It is entirely the responsibility of you and those in your travelling party to comply with the latest government requirements, which as we have seen may also change suddenly and without notice.

Most countries require proof of double-vaccination (exemptions may apply for children), as well as a pre-departure test done by a private pathology clinic (fees apply). Similarly, you need a pre-departure test before returning to Australia. We have summarised information known at this stage for our most popular destinations this ski season:

Pre-departure COVID-19 Testing

COVID-19 testing for travel clearance purposes is generally conducted at private pathology clinics only. Charges apply for COVID-19 testing services for travel in Australia and overseas at most destinations.

You'll need to make a plan for pre-departure testing both in Australia and overseas to ensure you get the results in the required time before your flights. Note that your closest clinic may not operate on weekends or public holidays.

Travelplan are pleased to offer a new pre-booking PCR testing service for those located in Sydney. This service is performed in the covenience of your own home or hotel. The test is an overnight service and your certificate with QR code will be emailed to you the next day. Please follow this link to book or for more information.
