With Christmas just one month away you might be frantically making plans to travel interstate or even overseas to see loved ones or enjoy a much-needed break, but do you know all the requirements you need to meet and when?

Every domestic and foreign destination has its own set of rules and regulations depending on where you are travelling to and from, including testing, vaccinations, high risk zones and travel insurance, so it can be hard to keep up with all the latest information.

The Quicky speaks to two travel and insurance experts and a Government Minister to find out everything you need to know before you pack bags.

For all the latest travel advice and requirements, be sure to check with the relevant state or territory via the links below, or the Federal Government's Smart Traveller website for overseas holidays.
