Good preparation is key to carefree travel. You can use Travel Admin, the travel app of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA), for this purpose.
Travel safe and worry-free with Travel Admin, the FDFA's travel app. Travel Admin helps you prepare for your trip, and provides useful information and services on the go – not just in the event of an emergency. The app is also an invaluable tool should a crisis occur at your destination.
To fully utilise the app's features, register your trip details, accompanying travellers and emergency contact information.
Travel Admin was developed for the needs of Swiss travellers:
- Enter your travel details into Travel Admin to keep destination information readily available for both you and your travelling companions. You can share your travel details with your own contacts at the touch of a button and easily update your current location at any time while travelling. This enables the FDFA to inform you about the current situation on the ground and the options available for leaving a crisis-affected area.
- Customise the practical checklists to meet your specific travel requirements.
- Prior to your trip, you should also consult the FDFA's travel advice – available directly on the app. The FDFA's country-by-country travel advice provides safety and security assessments, focusing on the political situation and crime, and general recommendations for travelling abroad.
- The app also gives you instant access to the address, contact details and website of the nearest Swiss representation, enabling you to contact it directly by phone, Skype or email.
- The app provides worldwide access to a country's emergency services numbers (fire brigade, police, ambulance) directly from your mobile phone's home screen.
- The app also offers information and services from private sector partners on travel-related topics, such as Swiss news, mobility tips, and medical emergency contacts abroad.
Ensure a well-planned trip by installing Travel Admin's latest version on your smartphone, registering yourself and those travelling with you, and entering your trips. Now you're ready to go!
We wish you a safe and relaxed journey.
