SOME SUGGESTIONS AND INFORMATION ABOUT TRAVELLING
1. PASSPORTS AND VISAS
(a) If visiting foreign countries ensure that your passport is valid and that you have a valid visa, where necessary, for the countries to be visited.
(b) If you lose your passport, notify your nearest Consulate.
(c) If you and your family are on a joint passport and intend to travel separately but at the same time; separate passports must be obtained.
2. CURRENCY AND EXCHANGE
Traveller's checks are one of the safest methods of carrying money. These can be obtained from your bank or travel agents and are signed once when issued and again when cashed.
Alternatively a letter of credit can be opened on which sums can be drawn.
Many countries have forms of exchange control limiting the amounts of currency taken in and out of their borders. It is wise to check with your bank about the countries you propose to visit.
