Important Notice: Coronavirus “COVID-19”

All international travel on behalf of Scouts Australia is now suspended until 31 January 2022.
This includes all National Contingents, Branch Friendship Tours, Conferences, Workshops and Meetings.
Departures prior to 31 January 2022 will only be considered for authorisation by the International Commissioner of Australia on advice of the Australian government in accordance with the “Resumption of International Scouting Travel Checklist”.
This is an extremely disappointing decision for many hundreds of members that were due to depart on their planned travel during these months, however the safety and welfare of our members is always our highest priority.
We look forward to providing more replacement opportunities for overseas travel in the future.
