Sydney Kingsford Smith International Airport (SYD) is Australia’s busiest airport, handling over 41 million passengers a year. The country’s national airline, Qantas, has its home base here and it is a secondary hub for Virgin Australia and Jetstar Airways.
Landing in Sydney Airport, you’ll be greeted by a plethora of facilities and services – whether you need to arrange transfers into the city centre, find public transport, change money or get tourist information, you’ll find everything you need in the arrivals hall.
Australia is stringent about what you can and can’t bring into the country. To protect its delicate ecosystem, plants, fruit and sometimes even the mud on your shoes is forbidden, so be sure to check the complete list of items that you must declare upon arrival.
Further information on airport transfers can be found on our how to get around Sydney page.

For UK citizens, applying for a visa can be done quickly, easily and at no cost via the Department of Immigration and Border Protection website.
