The 72 page guide offers a wealth of information, including advice on travel health, guidance on getting the right visa and keeping your money safe. It also explains what the FCO can and can't do should you need their assistance while abroad.

Along with advice and first hand experiences from travel experts there are also some helpful tips; such as health before you go, packing, staying safe, avoiding jet lag and even a tip to prevent insects crawling into your shoes at night!

The travel guide is available as an app for iPad and iPhone (iOS 5 and above) and Android devices. Or you can view it online as a PDF by clicking this link - Plan.Pack.Explore.
