Everything to know about your arrival and departure in Berlin

Berlin is considered very safe, and general common sense will serve visitors well. Crime is generally low, but pickpockets are on the lookout for easy marks, particularly around transit stations. In any emergency dial 112 from an international mobile phone. When navigating Berlin, the 'bluespot' app is an excellent guide for everything from tours to tools like bathroom locators. Look out for the 'Public Wi-Fi Berlin' at many locations for free internet access. It's also good to know that non-EU citizens require a passport to enter Germany, but many countries, including the USA, Australia, Japan, Brazil and Mexico, need not obtain a visa for stays of under 90 days.
