China News Service, September 29. According to the WeChat official account of the Chinese Embassy in Australia, the National Day holiday is approaching. In order to let you spend a pleasant holiday in Australia, the Chinese Embassy in Australia specially reminds you:

  1. Prevention of telecommunication fraud.

Criminals often impersonate officials of Chinese embassies and consulates in Australia, personnel of domestic public security and law departments, international express delivery companies, etc. to commit telecommunication fraud against Chinese citizens in Australia, and create "virtual kidnapping" scams.

The majority of international students and overseas Chinese are urged to be vigilant, take precautions, do not trust suspicious calls, and do not provide personal information at will.

If you are unfortunate enough to be deceived, please call the local police immediately to report the crime.

  Be sure to pay attention to driving safety when traveling during the holidays.

Abide by the local driving and parking regulations in Australia, pay attention to checking the driving direction, avoid illegal behaviors such as speeding, fatigue driving, drinking and driving, and driving without a license, and pay attention to avoid pedestrians, cyclists and wild animals.

  Please pay attention to keep in touch with your family during the holidays, and inform your family and friends in advance for long-distance travel to avoid "losing contact" for a long time and causing worry to your family.

In case of emergency, call the police for help in a timely manner: Australian police emergency telephone: 000, Australian police assistance telephone: 131444.
