Country Specific Information

The U.S. Department of State provides safety and security information for every country of the world to help you assess the risks of travel in specific locations you may be planning to study or travel. Each country information page contains a Travel Advisory, Alerts, and other important details specific to that country that could affect you.  Pay close attention to the entry and exit requirements, local laws and customs, health conditions, and other details listed. Each country's page will also include the address and phone number of the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.

Smart Traveler Enrollment Program

Once your student has selected a program and is ready to go overseas, s/he should enroll in the State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive important information about local safety conditions and to help connect your student with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate in the event of an emergency. As a parent, you can also sign up in STEP to receive travel and safety updates from the country where your child is studying.
