Ensuring Safety During Travel: A Guide for Ukrainian Refugees in Spain

Traveling as a refugee can be a daunting experience, and safety is paramount. This guide outlines essential precautions to protect yourself and your family during your journey to Spain. Being alert and aware of your surroundings is the first step towards ensuring your well-being.


Protect Your Documentation: Avoid anyone requesting your passport or identification documents unless they are public authorities, such as border checkpoint officials. Keep copies on your phone and share them with a trusted person.

Maintain Communication: Stay in touch with your family and trusted individuals. It's a lifeline in uncertain times.

Know Your Rights: Familiarize yourself with your rights as a refugee and where to access help. Reliable information is your ally.

Accommodation Choices: Opt for organized accommodations by reputable organizations. Reception centers, hotels, hostels, and NGOs offer secure lodging.

Private Stays: If staying with individuals, inquire about them, and don't agree to be separated from your family or fellow travelers. Never surrender your documents and set clear terms beforehand.

Transportation Caution: Choose organized transportation services from known providers whenever possible. Many companies in Europe offer free travel options for Ukrainians. Check the EU website for details.
