Hi,

does anybody know how I can get my history of travel outside of Australia in last 4-5 years? Is there any service or website that can be used?

Option of going through passport is bit too manual :-(

Thanks for help.

Immigration/Border control could probably supply records of departures and arrivals in Australia. They won't know where you went though.

Depending on the number of Airlines you have flown, your online/paper frequent flyer records??

Or another good reason in future to use a program like TripIt

Not sure how it works in Australia, but in New Zealand you can request a record of movements from immigration which shows all international travel, and on what airline etc.

Immigration would be the best people to contact.

My suggestion would be to search backwards through your email inbox to retrieve your flight confirmations, as well as trawl through your online frequent flyer statements. I very much doubt the Border Force is going to humour you and provide a summary of your movements (although it costs nothing to ask).

I did this when I was applying for my APEC ABTC for work, and it wasn't until I needed this information that realised how difficult it was to get my hands on! However 4-5yrs is a much bigger stretch.

Of course, your other option is to do it the "old fashioned" way, and sit down with your passport and a cup of tea...

Just out of curiosity, what's got you needing such a lengthy history?

Actually it's quite easy.

On excel create to following columns: Airport Code, Date In, Date Out. Go through each page of your passport and input the data. Better yet, photocopy pages of your passport and tick it off as you list the date. Then sort by "Date In".

This gives you the raw data to run pivot tables.

However this information is limited to airports, which stamp your passport. If you enter the UK as a Registered Traveller or Singapore using the biometric gates then you'll have to find a proxy such as flight details or even your FF statements.

Problem is, OZ and NZ almost never stamp passports of "locals"

Hi Jay,

Actually a quick Google search proved my theory. Immigration are happy to provide a summary of moments on request.
