This Advice was last issued on Thursday, 17 April 2014. It contains new information in the Summary and under Health (in 2013 and 2014 there have been a substantial number of Australians evacuated from cruise ships to Noumea for hospitalisation. We are aware of a number of cases where the insurance claims made by cruise passengers have been refused. This has adversely affected a number of Australian travellers, including older travellers with pre-existing medical conditions. Check your travel insurance policy to make sure that you understand exactly what your policy covers). We continue to advise Australians to exercise normal safety precautions in New Caledonia.
