Abu Dhabi / WAM
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation launched a new travel advice campaign for UAE nationals planning to travel abroad, to ensure their safety and fulfil its role in facilitating their travel and stay abroad, coinciding with the Eid-al-Fitr holiday and the start of the country’s summer holidays.
Rashid Ali Al Dhaheri, Director of the Nationals Administration at the Ministry, highlighted the importance of the campaign and pointed out that it could be regularly updated while noting that it is available to view on the
ministry’s official website, http://www.mofa.gov.ae/.
He urged the UAE’s nationals planning to travel abroad to register themselves and their families, including the elderly and children, for the “Tawajodi” service through the ministry’s website, which will enable them to contact the ministry and its missions abroad through a smart application in cases of emergency.
Al Dhaheri also urged the UAE’s nationals wishing to travel to register for the “Mussafer” programme, which is an emergency health insurance policy that was recently launched by the ministry, in cooperation with the National Company for Health Insurance, Daman, to protect its nationals abroad and provide them with the highest levels of emergency medical treatment, as well as to raise awareness about the risks of travelling, promote safety, and compensate their losses during their travels.
