Important Information for International Travel

Please have your passport and travel documents on hand, and keep in mind the Enhanced Security Measures for what is allowed on board international flights. Guests who have checked in online are required to present at Check-in and have their travel documents validated via the Check-in kiosks or a Virgin Australia team member prior to proceeding to Security.

Allow enough time to clear security, Customs and Immigration before boarding.

If you are travelling to the USA, you will need to provide ground crew and Customs officers with a contact address for your first night in the USA. We recommend that you have this documented and ready to present when required.
