Registering with STEP Program for Chartered Evacuation

International Travel Health and Safety

This email is just a reminder that it is advisable for U.S. citizens and nationals traveling abroad to enroll with the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). By enrolling in STEP, your trip and contact information is registered with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate. Providing this information can be particularly helpful should you change your mind about remaining abroad when commercial flights are limited, or borders are closed. The U.S. government sometimes charters evacuation flights from strategic areas around the globe to help citizens abroad return to the U.S. and will message registered travelers details about these limited opportunities. 

Non-U.S. citizens or nationals should reach out to their embassy to inquire about similar services that may be offered.
