Service Description

  • you are staying abroad for a long time, for example because you live there, or
  • you are abroad for a shorter stay, for example for tourism or business reasons.

If you register on the list, the responsible foreign representative can contact you quickly in an emergency or exceptional case. You will then be provided with advice and recommendations for your protection and safety, for example in the event of a natural disaster, war or revolution. This includes, for example, behavioral advice or information on assembly points.
