This advice contains new information under Entry and exit (Australians require a visa to travel to India. The Indian Government has advised that from December 2014, all visa applicants will need to be physically present at a visa application centre, by appointment, to submit their applications and biometric data, including fingerprints and facial imagery). We continue to advise Australians to exercise a high degree of caution in India overall because of the risk of terrorism, civil unrest and crime and the high rate of vehicle accidents.

20 September 2014
This Advice was last issued on Saturday, 20 September 2014.
This advice contains new information in the Summary, and under Safety and security (sporadic demonstrations and local disturbances have been reported across Sierra Leone related to the Ebola outbreak; be aware that these can turn violent). The Government of Sierra Leone announced a house-to-house sensitisation campaign between 19-21 September 2014. During this period everyone in Sierra Leone is required to remain in their homes/accommodation. We advise Australians to reconsider their need to travel to Sierra Leone because of the Ebola virus disease outbreak and the possibility of criminal activity and civil unrest.
