Safety & Security

Australia is a safe and peaceful country but like any modern country, you need to be security conscious, particularly at night. Here are some helpful tips:  
  • Do not walk alone at night especially in dark areas.
  • Stand or sit in areas that are well lit.
  • On the train, sit in a carriage where there are other people.
  • Always lock your house and car.
  • If you drive, everyone in the car must wear a seat belt. Take out comprehensive and third party insurance. You’ll be happy you did if you’re ever involved in an accident.
  • Never leave your bag, wallet, phone or camera unattended.
  • By law, helmets must be worn when riding a bicycle.
  • Your passport is your identification and is a valuable document. Make sure you keep your passport in a very safe place. There is no need to carry your passport everywhere. If you lose it, you will have to apply for a replacement in Australia and this can take up to three months. Also, always keep a copy of the passport’s front pages and your visa in a safe place in your new home.
  • Never carry a lot of money with you. When paying tuition fees, a bank cheque is always safer.
  • Never accept favours from people you don’t know. For example, do not accept a lift in a car or money.
