Volunteering overseas can be a rewarding travel experience, allowing you to be immersed in a different culture, meet and work with locals and likeminded travellers and make a contribution to a community in need. Reading and following the advice on this page will help to ensure that your overseas volunteering experience is safe, ethical and worthwhile.

We recommend that you volunteer with a reputable organisation, arrange your work visas and make appropriate arrangements for placement before you leave Australia. In some countries, finding a placement with a volunteer organisation on arrival is not possible.

This page should be read in conjunction with Travel advice: hints for Australian travellers and the travel advice for your planned destination.
