Emergency situation abroad – who do I ring? What is the security situation in Brazil? Can I travel to Switzerland without a passport? The UD Resklar app contains Ministry for Foreign Affairs advice and travel information on different countries around the world from Sweden’s embassies. The ‘My journey’ checklist will help you prepare for every journey. The MFA wishes you a pleasant trip!

Under the ‘My journey’ heading, you can easily prepare for every journey.

The UD Resklar app contains travel information on every country of the world. It is a good idea to read up on your travel destination before heading off. Up-to-date information about a country is downloaded when you navigate to that country’s page. If you mark a country as a favourite, or add it as a destination under ‘My journey’, the information is stored in your telephone so that you can read it even without an internet connection. A map function can be found under ‘Countries’. This function is dependent on an internet connection in order to locate current addresses of embassies and consulates. The app makes no distinction between WiFi and 3G connections, so keep track of your roaming settings when you are abroad in order to avoid excessive roaming charges.
