The services of the Crisis Unit of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation focus on security abroad.
The Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs invites all citizens planning to travel abroad to consult Viaggiare Sicuri, the portal designed and developed to encourage informed and responsible travel choices and to provide useful information so that each traveller can adopt, in every situation, a conscious attitude and a behaviour appropriate to the locations to be visited.
Travellers are also invited to register their travel plans and contact details on the Dove siamo nel Mondo website.
The “Unità di Crisi” APP, which combines the services of Viaggiare Sicuri and Dove siamo nel Mondo in a single tool, can be downloaded free of charge onto smartphones and tablets. Using advanced global mapping resources, the application offers the possibility for users travelling abroad to be geolocated, to receive notifications when transiting through the most at-risk areas, to be updated in real time about hazardous events, and to confirm they are safe in the wake of critical events, no matter where in the world they occur.
The services of the Crisis Unit can also be accessed directly from the APP IO, the public services application.
In case of serious emergencies abroad, the Crisis Unit can be reached h24 by calling +39 0636225
