DATA COLLECTION IN DFAT LEVEL 3 COUNTRIES: A PERSONAL EXPERIENCE

MR IMTIAZ ALI BUGHIO

Abstract:

This presentation is based upon my personal experiences to go through the formalities required by The University of Adelaide for my field trip to Pakistan for my MPhil research. The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade, Australia, has rated Pakistan as “Level 3 – Reconsider your need to travel” on its travel advisory website. Level 3 warns of “serious and potentially life threatening threats that make the destination unsafe for tourism and unsuitable for most travellers” (Travel Advice Explained, 2017). Other countries in DFAT Level 3 include Bangladesh, Ethiopia, Nigeria, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Venezuela, Bahrain and Sudan. This presentation includes the understanding of DFAT levels and the university requirements for data collection in the DFAT Level 3 countries. This presentation will significantly help students who wish to do research in Level 3 countries, as well as their supervisors, by making them aware of the DFAT requirements relating to students and staff at the University of Adelaide.
