We are committed to providing information and services to the widest possible audience. Smartraveller is for all Australians, regardless of ability, technology or platforms.
Our website has received independent accessibility testing and was assessed as being at a conformance level of Level AA in relation to the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.1 as of 1 November 2019.
We also aim to meet the Digital Transformation Agency's requirements for government websites.
Accessibility is a priority for us. However, we can't control the accessibility of content outside our domain. This includes websites we link to.
We recognise that some of our content is not as accessible as it could be. Meeting accessibility guidelines is an ongoing process. We keep working to improve it.
Some material on our website is provided in Portable Document Format (PDF). To view or print a PDF you will need to have a PDF reader installed.
We understand that some users may still find accessing PDF files difficult. We have, where possible, taken steps to ensure that alternative formats are available.
