From the Press Conference: Current Information before Travelling on Holiday

13.6.2019 | Aktivity ministerstva | Záznamy tlačových konferencií

Useful consular information, as well as practical advice on how Slovak tourists can find information before travelling or during an unexpected event abroad, were provided to media representatives at the press conference of Martin Bezák, the Director of the Consular Section of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic today (13 June 2019). Slovak tourists should pay attention to several tools provided by the Slovak Foreign and European Affairs Ministry aimed at increasing the comfort and security of Slovak citizens travelling abroad: the free system of assistance for citizens of the Slovak Republic who find themselves in an emergency situation, which helps contact Slovak citizens abroad who have voluntarily registered in case of a catastrophe, as well as 24/7 emergency hotline, the mobile application Svetobežka (also available in an offline mode), automatic information in the form of short SMS messages when crossing borders, and emergency SMS messages in critical situations. The infographics about the most visited countries, which are published on the website of the Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs of the Slovak Republic, are also of practical value. The press conference also involved issues of security relevant for individual tourist destinations.
