Basic advice before travelling abroad

Taking out a life insurance policy, making photocopies of your passport or consulting with the Ministry of Health to obtain information on recommended vaccinations form a series of basic requirements to be taken into account by tourists who are going to spend their holidays abroad, as recommended by the MFI group, a company specialised in training and collected by Europa Press.

Therefore, before traveling to other countries, especially if it is done to unsafe countries, it is advisable to contact the embassy or consulate of Spain so that they can locate the tourist in case of emergency.

In addition, the company advises visitors to make photocopies of visas, credit cards, and passports, taking the copies in separate places from the originals.

On the other hand, it must be ensured that the passport has a validity of at least six months from the scheduled date of return to Spain, as some countries deny entry to tourists who do not meet this requirement.

It is also essential to invest in a complete guide of the place you are going to visit, and take into account the climatology of the region to aadoptthe luggage.


It is advisable to put some of the money in traveler’s checks in case the cash is stolen, making a copy of the serial numbers.

It is also essential to have a credit card that is not close to exceeding its limit.

When leaving, it is advisable to leave your passport, credit cards or documentation in a hotel safe, keeping the money out of sight of others, in order to prevent theft.


Once in the chosen destination, the visitor should not get into taxis or unofficial transport and, if possible, it is advisable not to travel alone, let alone at night.

In the event of a robbery or altercation, it is necessary to notify the police and inform the bank about the theft of bank documents.

In any case, the person concerned can contact his or her embassy for further advice on the procedures to follow to carry out the relevant complaint.
