It is recommended that the traveler register with the US Department of State using the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). This allows the traveler to receive information from the embassy about safety conditions in the destination country and helps the embassy contact the traveler in case of an emergency.

Also, even though it is required that the traveler check the US Department of State Travel Warnings and Alerts at the time of the Travel Request submission in Concur, it is also recommend to check the site just before departure. There are also many other links on this site that provide vital information about the country (e.g. U.S. Embassy contact information, safety and security, travel, health, visa requirements, etc.)

In the event of an emergency while abroad, contact Texas A&M University's Assistance Abroad Program.
