Going somewhere a little off the beaten track?
Good travel advice can be hard to find. The safety situation in any one country can be complex, localised and change over night. By the same token, formerly war-torn countries can, and do, change for the better.
Many countries provide a helpful government travel advisory for their citizens travelling abroad. Whilst you should always check your own government’s travel advice first, as not following it might invalidate your travel insurance, the advice given between countries is not always the same.
Whether it is pick-pockets or Polio that you should be worried about, below are a selection of government travel advisory services to help you make the right next move:
Safety and Security
Brazil (in Portuguese)
Centre for Disease Control and Prevention
United Kingdom – Health
United Nations – Health
World Health Organisation – International Travel and Health
