A new version of the mobile Advice to Travelers app is now available. Created in 1999, the Advice to Travelers page has seen a massive increase in hits on the France Diplomatie site in recent years, with 32 million hits in 2020 compared with 9.4 million in 2019, and more than 58 million since the beginning of 2021.
In light of the rapidly evolving health situation, it is more necessary than ever to make proper preparations for travel abroad.
To meet the needs of French citizens who travel abroad, the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs decided to update the mobile app launched in 2012. In this latest version, users will have access, as they do on the website, to the 191 files that provide information on the situation in destination country to facilitate smooth stays abroad.
That information includes security advisories (written references and maps), conditions for entry and stays, health information (vaccination requirements, restrictions on movement linked to the Covid-19 pandemic, etc.) and practical information (practices and customs, local laws, etc.).
It is updated regularly by the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs’ Crisis and Support Center in partnership with our field-based posts using a system certified by the ISO 9001 standard. In 2020, 3,378 updates were made.
The latest version of the app can be downloaded onto Android and IOS devices.
