Government Travel Info

The world is filled with an abundance of cultures and people to embrace. It's important, however, to understand these peoples and cultures before you visit a foreign country as some customs and habits that you are free to experience here in the U.S. may be considered taboo where you're planning to visit or vice versa.

  • The U.S. Government's Background Notes on countries that you plan to visit tell you everything you need about the people, culture, customs, and, importantly, the laws.


The government also wants to remain aware of certain destinations that may warrant careful considerati on before visiting. For that, we suggest you check out:

  • U.S. Government Travel Warnings and Information


Lastly, it's also advisable to contact the U.S. Embassy or Consulate in your foreign destination.

  • U.S. Embassy - Contact makes your presence and whereabouts known in case you need to be contacted in an emergency. Also, leave copies of your itinerary, passport data, and visas at home with family or friends. This will certainly help speed up replacement processes in the event your information is lost or stolen. Hey, it happens and we definitely want you to be prepared.
