Advise on staying abroad: Travel warnings

We ask all international travelers, especially those on self-organized trips abroad, to inform themselves in advance about any travel warnings issued by the German Foreign Office.

The Federal Foreign Office recommends that German nationals register on the "Elefand" crisis precaution list of the Federal Foreign Office, regardless of the country they are visiting and the duration of their stay abroad.

Attention should also be drawn to the "Sicher Reisen-App" (Safe Travel App) of the Federal Foreign Office, which summarizes all necessary information on travel preparations and the stay itself.

"The Federal Foreign Office strongly recommends that all travelers behave in a security-conscious manner that is appropriate to the situation. Travelers should carefully inform themselves about the conditions in their destination country before and during a trip, behave appropriately to the situation, follow the local media and report suspicious incidents (unattended luggage in airports or train stations, suspicious behavior of persons or similar) to the local police or security authorities."
