The "Registo Viajante" is a mobile app, available on Android and IOS operating systems, that allows you to register your travel itinerary in a voluntary, easy and free of charge way.
Anyone who registers himself in the app receives recommendations and security advices about the country to which they will travel to, as well as information about the country's situation (alerts or warnings) and the indication of the diplomatic and consular representations of Portugal. Travelers registered in the app also have access to a list of useful contacts, as well as answers to frequently asked questions.
In case of an emergency (natural disasters, bombings, public order changes and accidents), the application allows GPS tracking of nationals and the new panic button feature allows you to call and/or send a message to the Gabinete de Emergência Consular.
Therefore, detailed registration of the cities and places to visit is advised. In addition, travelers should consider signing an itinerary contract with their telecommunications operator and travel insurance.
