We encourage you to consider your registration as an integral part of security.
Vast numbers of Ivorian nationals who reside or travel abroad do not encounter any difficulties. However, since nothing shall be excluded, an Ivorian abroad could become victim of crime, accident/s, illness, death, natural/man-made disasters, civil unrest, urging the family to contact him/her in an emergency. The Consulate would like to urge its co-nationals to leave the most complete list of contact phone numbers and residing addresses in order to locate you during an emergency, verifying your status, liaising with your next-of-kin and advising you on what to do.
Registration is voluntary, costs 200aed and is free of charge for students. We will not disclose the information you provide through the registration application to any third parties (this includes family members) unless you have first given it written authorization to do so. In the event that family members make enquiries about your whereabouts, such requests will be forwarded to you. You may choose to inform the mission of your decision to respond or not.
