Infections acquired overseas are responsible for the majority of cases in NSW, SA, Tasmania, Victoria and WA. Most of these are from Europe, followed by the US.

Other countries or areas that have made a significant impact include (in decreasing order): South-East Asia; New Zealand and the Pacific; North-East Asia (including China); North Africa and the Middle East; Southern and Central Asia and Sub-Saharan Africa.
