  • Apply for International Travel Allowance if applicable
  • Turn on International Roaming on your mobile device

Please contact your mobile provider for information on International Roaming and any charges that may apply.

If you have a UQ mobile device, you will need to switch on International Roaming prior to departure. A detailed guide is available on the ITS website.

  • Call your bank

Tell your bank and credit card providers about your travel plans so they don’t suspect fraud when they notice foreign transactions on your cards.

  • Keep all receipts in the event you need to make a claim upon your return
  • Keep your travel diary up to date
  • Stay in touch. In addition to keeping in contact with your family and friends, it is strongly recommended you keep in regular contact with your Supervisor and International SOS, particularly when you make changes to your original travel plans.
