Planning your travel
Due to the time difference in Australia and possible jet lag experiences by travellers, the Host Organising Committee suggests you consider arriving to Australia a couple of days prior to the commence of WONCA 2023. This will enable you to relax, acclimatise and familiarise yourself with your hotel and the local area before the start of WONCA 2023.
Australia is free from many plant and animal diseases prevalent in other countries. Very strict quarantine rules apply to the import of animals and plants which cannot be brought into the country without prior application. Animal and plant products are also restricted.
For more information please refer to the ‘Travelling to Australia’ section on the website of the Department of Agriculture.
