Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP)
We encourage all of you to register in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) at https://step.state.gov/step/. By enrolling, U.S. citizens make it easier for the U.S. Embassy to contact them in case of emergency.
Department of State:
For the latest security information, U.S. citizens traveling abroad should regularly monitor the Department of State's Internet website at Travel.State.gov where the Worldwide Caution, Country Specific Information, Travel Warnings, and Travel Alerts can be found. Follow the Bureau of Consular Affairs on Twitter and on Facebook as well. Download the free Smart Traveler iPhone or Android app to have travel information at your fingertips.
Up-to-date information on security can also be obtained by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll free in the United States and Canada, or, for callers outside the United States and Canada, a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444. These numbers are available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday (except U.S. federal holidays).
