Wherever you are going, travelling abroad can be exciting, stimulating and interesting. However, in some places there are obvious risks and there are precautions that everyone should take – before leaving, during the journey and while they are there.

No one set of guidelines will fit all the countries you may visit; protocols, cultures, religions and political circumstances will affect what is and is not acceptable. Security for you, your colleagues and your company depends on you being aware of those differences and using common sense to behave in an appropriate way.
