Scouts Australia has eight Contingents traveling overseas in the next two years, and applications are either open now or about to open! To learn more about what they are, where they are going, cost and age requirements, click here to go to the Scouts Australia International Website, or to apply directly online, go to the International Event Registrations Website - OLEMS.
When traveling outside Australia and not part of an Official Contingent, the International Letter of Introduction (ILOI) is your only official Scout credentials to prove that you are a member of Scouts Australia. Valid for up to 12 months, you need to use the Scouts Australia OLEMS System to apply for this documentation.
To apply, create an account on the OLEMS System and follow the links to register for an ILOI.
Successful applicants are able to purchase an Australian Scarf through OLEMS, which are shipped from the east coast of Australia (please allow time for this to arrive) - these are not available from WA Branch or the WA Scout Shop.
Possession of this means that a member is a current financial member of Scouting, and in good standing with the Organisation.
