Crisis Prevention

The Foreign Office of the Federal Republic of Germany maintains a crisis precaution list (ELEFAND) for Germans abroad. The registration is done online. The registration in the crisis precaution list is required in order to be alerted in an emergency situation and, if necessary, be included in crisis management measures by the German representation abroad.

Professionals and accompanying family members who go abroad under the German Development Workers’ Act and who do not have German citizenship also have the option of registering on this list. If you belong to this group of people, you can enter your contact details in the form below; the AGdD will forward your details to the German Federal Foreign Office. Afterwards, you will receive a link from the German Federal Foreign Office (by e-mail), which will give you access to the ELEFAND registration form. This process can take several weeks, because the data is bundled and forwarded only once a month.

The registration form of the Federal Foreign Office is available in German language, only. In addition to the contact details, please fill also the field „Sonstige Angaben (optional)“ and write the following: „Teilnahme an BMZ-Programm Entwicklungsdienst (EH)“. This information is needed in order to link your registration to the German Development Service.

Note: (Only) German citizens can register directly with ELEFAND:
