Trips outside the EU and European citizens’ rights

According to a report by the European Commission, the citizens of the 27 member countries of the Union take place every year about 90 million trips outside the EU, whether for business or leisure.

If a European aid needs abroad and country of origin has no embassy or consulate, the Commission states that all EU citizens have certain rights deriving from European citizenship.

“For example, if your country is not represented, you can seek embassy or consulate of another EU country. This right applies to situations commonly encountered, such as theft of a passport, a serious accident or illness and in crisis situations – such as recent events in Libya or Syria” said an EC recent statement published on its website.
