Learn about your travel destination. You should review the news regarding your destination and also review the country specific information provided by The State Department’s Office of American Citizens Services and Crisis Management (ACS). The ACS oversees the Consular Information Program, which informs the public of conditions abroad that may affect their safety and security. Country Specific Information, Travel Alerts, and Travel Warnings are vital parts of this program.
Country Specific Information is available for every country of the world. Travelers can expect to find the location of the nearest U.S. embassy and any consular offices. You will also find out about visa requirements, crime statistics and information about security and travel news. Health and medical considerations are listed when applicable.
