Emirati travellers told to be careful in Greece
The United Arab Emirates Embassy in Athens issued a circular for Emiratis residing in and travelling to Greece over heavy holiday traffic.
The embassy on its official Twitter account said, “Citizens travelling to Santorini Island should be careful and keep a watch on their belongings, due to the heavy holiday rush, especially when watching the sunset.”
Emiratis have been cautioned to avoid heavy gatherings and remain vigilant of pickpockets.
The iconic island of Santorini is famous for its pebbled stone pathways and picturesque sunset. Every year, tourists throng the island to catch a glimpse of nature at its best.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation has launched a new travel advice campaign for UAE nationals planning to travel abroad, to ensure their safety and fulfil its role in facilitating their travel and stay abroad.
Rashid Ali Al Dhaheri, Director of the Nationals Administration at the Ministry, highlighted the importance of the campaign and pointed out that it could be regularly updated while noting that it is available to view on the ministry’s official website, http://www.mofa.gov.ae/.
He urged the UAE’s nationals planning to travel abroad to register themselves and their families, including the elderly and children, for the “Tawajodi” service through the ministry’s website, which will enable them to contact the ministry and its missions abroad through a smart application in cases of emergency.
