Travel safe and worry-free with Travel Admin, the FDFA's travel app. Travel Admin helps you prepare for your trip, and provides useful information and services on the go – not just in the event of an emergency. But if there is a crisis abroad, the app can be a valuable tool: such as during the COVID-19 pandemic, when it proved particularly useful in organising return journeys for Swiss travellers stranded abroad.
Travel Admin – Online registration for travels abroad
«Get started now»
Sign up now in Travel Admin – and manage your trips abroad.
It's easy to sign up and enter your first trip abroad. If there's a natural disaster or other type of crisis where you're travelling, for example, the FDFA will know where you are and be able to give you vital information so that you can help yourself.
Prior to your trip, you should also consult the FDFA's travel advice – available directly on the app. Here, you will find information about security-related issues, such as politics and crime, in your destination country. Travel advice is based on an assessment of the current situation and possible risks.
If you've entered your trip in the Travel Admin app, you'll also be notified if the security situation in your destination country deteriorates. You should, however, heed the warnings and instructions of the local authorities in the first instance.
Good preparation is half the journey
Use Travel Admin's customisable checklists to plan the perfect trip. You can attach copies of important travel documents like your passport and insurance policies to the checklists. The FDFA's regularly updated travel advice is available at the touch of a button and is an indispensable part of any good travel plan. Once you've registered, you can simply enter your destinations as well as your travel companions and an emergency address directly from your contacts list.
Good preparation is key to carefree travel. You can use Travel Admin, the travel app of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs (FDFA), for this purpose.
Don't leave home without the FDFA
The app can be a valuable companion when you're on the road
If you're on the app and there's a crisis in your destination country, you'll get push notifications from the FDFA. The app also gives you quick access to the address, contact details and website of the nearest Swiss representation, so you can contact them directly by phone, Skype or email. In addition, the app lists emergency numbers (fire service, police, ambulance) for your destination. Last but not least, the FDFA Helpline is also accessible from the app and can provide you with round-the-clock assistance worldwide.
Download the Travel Admin app for free on your smartphone – for a well-prepared and worry-free trip.
Go to Settings to activate or deactivate push notifications at any time.
Once your trip has been completed, the information will be kept for another 90 days; then it will be deleted.
If your account remains inactive for more than two years, all user data will be automatically deleted.
Go to 'Delete user account' under Settings to delete your account completely.
You will receive automatic push notifications if there are any changes in the travel advice for your destination country.

- Then select the functions you want to receive notifications for.

No, only the coordinates that you communicate directly are recorded. Enter your trip in the app and save the address of your destination. Doing this means that in addition to being in contact with the FDFA, you will also be able to notify the FDFA of your location if a major crisis occurs where you are – simply update your location at any time with the touch of a button and press send.
FDFA travel advice: up-to-date information on over 200 countries.
Find out what travel advice the FDFA has for your destination country via the app, and get the best prep for your next trip abroad.

Don't forget anything with these practical checklists integrated in the Travel Admin app. You can also customise them to fit your personal needs or store documents like passport copies, travel plans and insurance policies.
The FDFA Helpline, providing rapid assistance abroad.

Enter the trip first for yourself, then add the other people as fellow travellers.
