FCO - Locate

It is natural to have concerns when visiting a foreign country, for all sorts of reasons, and certainly the situation as reported in Egypt is giving people more cause for concern.

One thing you can do before you go on holiday is to use the Governments LOCATE registration site (I am sure other countries must have similar schemes).

From the website:

What are the benefits of registering with LOCATE?

if a major catastrophe occurs we’ll have an instant record of your details so we can contact you to make sure you’re OK and provide advice.

if family and friends need to get in touch with you we can help them to find you.

it only takes a few minutes to register your travel or residence information online and the local British Embassy will know you are coming. You do not need to contact them directly.

you only need to register for the service once and then update your account when you make a new trip abroad or change your country of residence. You can even add planned trips abroad up to a year ahead

LOCATE improves our ability to provide help in an emergency and reduce delay and worry in times of stress for family and friends at home.

Just to add that the FCO wesite is in the process of moving website address and the present one will shut down in a few weeks. No doubt by which time the Locate section will be moved too.

New FCO website address:
