Traveller Tips

Safety Tips

The majority of visitors enjoy a safe and pleasant trip. However, you still need to be wary and take care of your person.

  • Do not walk alone on streets, particularly after dark
  • Walk only in well-lit areas and avoid obscure alleys
  • Do not invite attention by carrying cameras or wearing exposed jewellery or watches
  • Store valuables in a safe place, you should not leave valuables unattended in your hotel rooms or in public places
  • In the unlikely event you are in a threatening situation, do not try and be a hero, as your assailant may be armed. Give them what they want and try to remain calm.

Take copies of your passport and leave one with a family member or friend and carry one with you whilst travelling in case of loss or theft.
