Before you go: Before you leave Australia it is a good idea to contact the US embassy to confirm the exact entry requirements, as they are known to change. As a general rule, those travelling to Los Angeles for a holiday under 90 days are eligible for the Visa Waiver Program, which means you do not require a visa. Your eligibility for this program will be determined by the Electronic System for Travel Authorisation, which you must apply for at least three days before you depart Australia.
Before you leave, contact your bank and organise a way to access money while on holiday. Often if you do not tell your bank you are going overseas and you try to access money from a foreign atm, your accounts will be frozen. Also arrange to have some of your money converted into US dollars for when you land.
Lastly, it’s important to arrange travel insurance before you fly to LA. It may be the last thing on your mind when planning your trip but accidents can happen and medical bills are particularly expensive in the US. Talk to your Student Flights consultant about what coverage is best suited to you.
What to bring: LA is generally warm so you will only need to pack a few light layers. Do check what season you are travelling in as you may need a jacket. Clothes in the US are incredibly cheap and feature all the name brands we know and love, so make sure you leave some room in your bag for the return journey home.
The water in LA is generally not drinkable and as such most people buy bottled water. Save yourself some money and pack a filter water bottle to take around with you. Not only does it save you money but it is also better for the environment.
Don’t leave home without the appropriate power adaptor. Most outlets in the US use two horizontal flat pin plugs, so be sure to pack that particular power adaptor to use on your trip.
During your flight: The flight from Sydney to Los Angeles takes just over 15 hours when flown direct. Some airlines may stop over in Asia or the Middle East and thus can take longer.
During your long haul LA flight it is important to look after yourself by staying hydrated and performing in-flight exercises. Not moving during your flight can cause circulation problems and discomfort. In order to avoid this, walk around the plane and stretch when possible.
