Crime:
You should be aware that robberies, burglaries, and auto theft are common in Australia’s larger cities.
Weapons are increasingly used in such crimes, which also may be associated with drug trafficking and usage. Foreign visitors are targets for pickpockets,purse-snatchers, and petty thieves. Please be careful when drinking with unfamiliar people or travelers, as drink spiking sometimes occurs.
COUNTRY DESCRIPTION:
Australia is a highly developed, stable democracy with a federal-state system. Tourist facilities are widely available.
MEDICAL INSURANCE:
You can’t assume your insurance will go with you when you travel. It’s very important to find out BEFORE you leave. You need to ask your insurance company two questions:

  • Does my policy apply when I’m out of the United States?
  • Will it cover emergencies like a trip to a foreign hospital or an evacuation?
