The Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MoFA) has urged UAE nationals travelling abroad to follow certain guidelines and procedures to ensure their safety.

Rashid Ali Al Dhaheri, Director of Nationals’ Affairs at MoFA, said as well as keeping personal documents and passports safe, citizens travelling to foreign countries should avoid wearing expensive clothes and accessories of famous brands in public places, which might attract unwanted attention.

He said citizens should register themselves and their young and old family members in the Ministry's Tawajedi services (My Whereabouts) through the website of the Foreign Ministry (www.mofa.gov.ae) or smartphone application 'UAEMOFA', which are primarily dedicated to assisting UAE citizens who face emergency situations or crises abroad.
