Overseas Travel

The South Australian Government Premier and Cabinet Circular PC035 requires all agencies to make information related to overseas travel available to the public via the agency’s website.

To allow adequate time for receipt of charges and reconciliation of costs, information relating to overseas travel will be posted two (2) months after the traveller(s) return to Australia.

For all overseas travel disclosures prior to May 2015, please refer to published Annual Reports. For travel disclosures from the former Minister for Defence Industries and Ministerial Staff click here.
