Your safety while travelling on your adventure is important, just like making sure your insurance policy is valid when you embark on your adventure. To ensure your policy is valid whilst travelling, we've pulled an up-to-date list of countries the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) consider as "Do not travel" & "Reconsider your travel" – this is provided via the Smartraveller website.

It's important to keep up-to-date with this page and the Smartraveller website. If the country you intend to visit is on this list, your travel insurance policy may not be valid.
