Stay safe during migration

Some destinations are more risky than others, that is undeniable. The risks when travelling to Spain or Libya are radically different. There are two factors to consider here:

  • The way you travel: an organised trip will involve less risk than if you go alone
  • Your risk aversion: are you 20 and a bit of a daredevil or 40 and want a peaceful trip?

Before making a final choice of destination, consider consulting the Ministry’s website to acquire some essential information. Even if it is sometimes too pessimistic, it gives you a good overview of the situation in a country.



Did you know about this?

In general, to enter a country, a foreigner must have :

  • a valid passport,
  • a visa
  • documents relating to the reasons for their stay, the conditions of their accommodation their means of subsistence, the guarantees for their possible repatriation, the subscription to a health insurance
  • and, for those who wish to work, a work permit. For this purpose, there are short-stay visas and long-stay visas. The latter can only be issued by consular authorities.

Then, for those who stay after a certain period (03-06 months), they must in principle be in possession of a residence permit. This document allows them to move freely throughout the country. Hence the residence permit valid for ten years; the temporary residence permit for a maximum of one year. All these documents are a kind of shield against unexpected and sometimes inconceivable extradition.
