Business Travel Resource Guide – Sydney, Australia
So you’re going to Sydney for work and you’re not sure what to expect? Here are some tips.
From most international destinations, you’ll be flying in to the Sydney Airport, 8km from the Central Business District. For information regarding getting there and away, check the Transportation website.
Before you leave, check the health info at the CDC Page and check with your travel doctor for any vaccinations you may need and updated health information. This is not a problem for people traveling from the US or Canada, but may be for people of some other countries.
The currency is the Australian Dollar, you can check conversion rates here.
You can check the Sydney Morning Herald for local news.
If your company hasn’t made your hotel reservations, you can get them here.
For visa information, check with the appropriate embassy. You don’t need one to travel from the US, but of-course you need your passport. Australia is part of APEC. If you travel there often, it may be worth your while to become a member.
Be sure to pack appropriately for the weather. Sydney is temperate year round, so leave your snow gear at home.
