Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP)

We encourage you to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), a free service to allow U.S. citizens and nationals traveling abroad to enroll their trip with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate.  You will receive important information from the Embassy about safety conditions in your destination country, helping you make informed decisions about your travel plans. This program helps the U.S. Embassy contact you in an emergency, whether natural disaster, civil unrest, or family emergency.

Non-U.S. citizens should contact their home embassy for details on registering their travel.
