Security tips

Read any relevant travel notices issued by the Ministry for Foreign Affairs before travelling. These notices describe the crime situation in different countries and any places or things that should specifically be avoided. At least the sections on Crime and Traffic are worth reading.

If you are travelling to a particularly risky country, you should file a travel notification to the Ministry for Foreign Affairs. A travel notification includes personal data, contact info valid during the trip and information about the trip. This information is supplied to the Ministry and it is used in case of an emergency or a crisis situation.
