International Travel Guide

New travel guide for government workers

The Government Health and Safety Lead, together with the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Trade and the PSR, have created a Travel Guide to encourage you to consider the safety and security aspects of any upcoming travel.

There is a level of risk for anyone undertaking overseas travel, but as government employees there may be added factors to consider. Every government employee should take the time to make a plan in collaboration with their health and safety and/or security teams before any international travel.

The Travel Guide is a one page document that asks you to consider your safety, security and wellbeing while travelling. It prompts you to know your risks, do the research and maintain contact throughout your trip.

This is not exhaustive guide, but offers some important ‘think points’ and clearly indicates where you can find more information. The guide will be sent out with your itinerary when your travel is confirmed.
