Hong Kong Update-Consulting Your Country’s Travel Advisory

With the recent mass demonstrations taking place in Hong Kong I thought it would be an appropriate time to review utilizing your country’s travel advisory. No matter where you are planning your upcoming trip to, it’s always a good idea to check out your country’s travel advisory whether it’s the U.S. State Department, U.S. State Department Canadian travel advisory, Travel Advisory Canada, Australia, Smart Traveller Australia or the U.K, U.K. Travel Advice. That being said at the time of the publishing of this episode, unless you are planning on joining the demonstrators in Hong Kong everything else seems to be business as usual throughout the region. One other issue that’s critical in the planning of your trip besides safety is whether your country is advising against travel other than for essential purposes. This can affect the validity of your travel or health insurance, so check the advisory and your policy beforehand. There’s also important visa information, length of stays, etc that your country’s travel advisory will have on their site! Thanks so much for listening!
