No matter whether you are the first or frequent traveler, travel safety begins with you. Some people traveling abroad are part of their office work. They are at risk always when they go abroad.
People in overseas business travel for various reasons, for example:
– attending business meetings / workshops / workshops,
– presentations of academic papers / lectures
– Collection materials for articles or books,
– Performs Hajj or Umrah, etc.
A wise writer is attempting to list the most hazardous struggling overseas land, traveler. It can be divided into five parts, previously premature preparation; at the airport; while in the host country and personal security; hotel safety; and return journey.
Travelers should remember that security measures at airports and hotels are tight and that they must learn to take sensible and prudent travel arrangements. Readers should also note that these ideas are not exhaustive, they should only be used as a guide, and travel tips from other sources should also be considered.
Based on the writer's own experience, there are not many risks except preparation. This usually includes: a passport; booking two trips; hotel reservation; visa of the host country; currency; any required vaccination; and travel insurance.
Pas is considered to be your own life. It's also the most commonly used document whenever you travel. It is used when applying for a visa, airport check-in, immigration and customs check-in, check-in, pick-up checks (if necessary), etc.
With regard to packaging, individual taste. The golden rule to follow is always the light of the road. Small thieves and handkerchiefs like to use or prey for tired passengers loaded with heavy luggage. Additional safety warnings when packing: pack your luggage yourself; lock your luggage so you can not insert or remove anything; use plain-looking luggage (designer, fantasy or expensive luggage prospects for potential losers); use your luggage and put another one in the luggage compartment; Remove old brands of the destination airline. and to wear the appropriate clothing.
For those who carry a laptop, always first check the type of connector used by the host country – this may be a British three-pole, a European double-pole circle, a US two-line apartment or other. In case of doubt, bring the international adapter. To avoid attracting attention, passengers are encouraged to put their notebooks in non-laptop bags.
You might also want to provide a reasonable amount of medication for common illness such as fever, diarrhea, cough, cold, etc. One last remark does not contain sharp objects, explosive objects, and check-in to the airport at least 3 hours before departure.
It is for your advantage if your organization has a local contact to take care of you when you are in the host country.
At the airport
Passengers should be informed of the following security and safety measures: refrain from carrying luggage or parcels for others; never leave your luggage at the airport or in a safe place, such as the Golden Lounge; Always arrive at the luggage compartment when you leave the aircraft during transit or transit; Avoid talking about your office work, purpose of travel, accommodation, itineraries, etc. with strangers. If you need to put your luggage, put it between your legs.
While in host country and personal security
After completing all landing formalities, the first thing to wait for baggage clearance, if any. Areas of luggage claims are commonly found right behind an immigration counter. When collecting luggage, make sure that the luggage compartment is damaged. Someone working in the airport complex may have tried to manipulate passengers. things, sometimes randomly. If this happens to your luggage, report the safety table immediately.
Before leaving the airport, call a local contact person if you have one. We recommend changing some money to your local currency. You may have to pay a taxi from the airport to the hotel in local currency. In some places, however, you can use the service of one of the renowned taxi counters and the fare is charged to your hotel account.
Passengers may want to note that in some countries US dollars are considered commodities. Pollution of notes will affect the value of the exchange rate. The exchange rate may vary by banknote – higher banknotes charge a higher exchange rate.
If your business meeting takes place outside the hotel, order a hotel taxi for your transport needs. It can be a bit more expensive, but it's safer. Always go after the pairs whenever possible. In many cities, taxes are reliable, but get ready with a little change as to how many taxi drivers it does not have. A small change can also be used as a tip if you feel good about it.
We remind you that it is normal for a security person to request your ID card in exchange for a visitor card. You can give any form of identification number, but never your passport.
To minimize personal trips when traveling overseas, we recommend that you follow the steps below: Inform yourself or register with your country's high commission. Be informed or register with the Country / Region Manager's Office (applicable to some multinational corporations that have overseas offices) keep a low profile and do not expose yourself; do not display money or jewelry in public; carry a cell phone all the time; learn not to trust anyone; try as much as possible to look like a local, such as dressing up; learn to break away from the routine; Do not engage in local civil disputes – Stay in the house; do not drive, so it is possible to prevent traffic accidents; if you were arrested, immediately contact your High Commission for help; Use your shoulder wallet to have your passport, ticket, cash, etc. Never connect with drugs; avoid walking alone and shorten the time spent on the streets; women should not walk alone in the street to avoid unnecessary harassment; and beware of the criminals who represent police personnel as police officers to seize foreign tourists.
Other useful travel tips include: hold both hands free; keep a passport, ticket and cash all the time; make photocopies of passports and tickets, but keep them separate from the originals; be careful when using maps because they indicate that you are a foreigner or a tourist; keep the blood type identity in your wallet / wallet, if available; to correctly place your mobile phone, as the theft is common in some countries; suggest that you bring pasport photography with you; avoid buying too many expensive items using payment cards. Before signing, always check the amount on your credit card purchase credit card. Eat only cooked food and drink bottled drinking water or bottled mineral water; putting a signaling device, e.g., a whistle whistle; Practice the use of a local public telephone, if possible; Learn to divide the location of the valuable items you wear; not to eat and drink from strangers – may be given drugs; and when ordering packaged or preserved liquid, ensure that it is opened only in front of your eyes.
Safety of Hotels
While increasing security, hotels can install a metal detector arc in some countries or use a metal detector to view visitors and visitors.
As a security measure during hotel check-in, a room requirement is not located above the sixth floor, if available. Easier escape in case of emergency, eg fire. Travelers should be sure that rooms on lower floors provide easy access to thieves or intruders. On arrival, put the luggage in front of you.
After check in, bring your own luggage to your room. Travelers arriving late at night may want to ask a bell or a porter to bring the luggage directly to the room and accompany him. When you first enter your hotel room, thoroughly check the room (in the bathroom, connecting door, curtain, cabinet, etc.) to make sure that the room is really empty and safe before closing the door.
To reduce or minimize the risks while staying at the hotel, the following are useful and inefficient: choose a newly built hotel. The manager has certainly installed the latest security gadgets available on the market; check the location of fire and stairs, etc. It is useful when you need to evade or evacuate quickly during an emergency, such as fires, bomb threats, terrorist attacks, earthquakes, etc. Remember that the lift is out of order during operation; For additional protection for you and your valuables, consider using the rubber wedge or door plug you usually use at home; always have a torch with a flashlight with extra batteries – to use when power is interrupted. Some hotels provide a lantern that is usually in the closet; Verify the caller before opening the door; Show Do Not Disturb on the Door; check the hotel whether drinking water can be used. In some countries, you can not drink tap water or boil because it could damage your stomach. Boil the supplied mineral water and prepare drinks; place your blessings on one or two places. It is easier to re-wrap them if you have to avoid it quickly, eg in case of emergency; to prevent theft of the hotel, keep all the things under lock when leaving the room; and if you have planned a meeting in the same hotel where you live, it is in your advantage to first check the location of the room as soon as possible.
For safety reasons, it is safer to travel directly from the hotel to the airport. Passengers should plan ahead when leaving the hotel, as traffic conditions in some cities are unpredictable.
Remaining passengers are required to fill out the exit card. They are also required to pay airport tax, unless it is included in the ticket price.
Again, do not carry a sharp object, explosive objects, and check in at least 3 hours before departure.
Always remember that safety rules are starting with you.
