If you will be traveling internationally, it is recommended by Homeland Security to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).
What is STEP?
STEP is a free service to allow U.S. citizens and nationals traveling and living abroad to enroll their trip with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.
Benefits of Enrolling in STEP
- Receive important information from the embassy about safety conditions in your destination country, helping you make informed decisions about your travel plans.
- Help the U.S. embassy contact you in the event of an emergency, whether natural disaster, civil unrest, or family emergency.
- Help family and friends get in touch with you in an emergency.
