Smartraveller Advice
23 July 2016

The shooting incident in Munich on 22 July (local time) has been resolved. At least 9 people have been killed. German authorities are treating it as a terrorist investigation. Public transport has returned to normal. You should expect extra security in the city. Remain vigilant as the threat of terrorism in Germany remains high. Given you're no longer being asked to stay indoors, we've lowered the level for Munich to the pre-attack level of 'exercise normal safety precautions', in line with the level for all of Germany.

Smartraveller Advice
23 July 2016

?In July 2016 Brazilian authorities arrested a number of individuals alleged to be planning terrorist attacks on the Olympic Games. Brazil has heightened security arrangements in place for the Olympic period. Even so, travellers are reminded that major international events represent potentially attractive targets for terrorists (see Safety and security). If you're heading to Rio, keep monitoring the media and our advice for any changes in the safety and security environment. The level of this advice has not changed. We continue to advise Australians to exercise a high degree of caution in Brazil.
