Important documents and papers
Keep these items with you at all times, and don’t place them at the bottom of any luggage that you might get separated from.
Pre-trip medical care
In case of a chronic illness or complicated previous medical history, ask your doctor to write a medical report, preferably in English, that summarizes your situation (background, description of your illness, past cases, results of recent tests, etc.) and mentions your usual treatment. Also be sure to review your travel insurance policy to understand any limitations of coverage and/or exclusions related to pre-existing medical conditions.
