U.S. Department of State - Visas

Before visiting a foreign country, you should ensure that all your travel concerns are addressed. The State Department can help answer questions about traveling abroad. Here are a few of the most common questions my office receives that deal with this agency:

To find out detailed, updated information on travel warnings and public information, visit the Travel Page at the U.S. Department of State website.

To help make informed decisions about travel plans, I encourage you to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). 

Enrolling in STEP will allow you to receive important information from the Embassy about your destination country.  More importantly, it will help the US Embassy contact you in an emergency, whether it is a natural disaster, civil unrest or family emergency.  It will also help your family and friends to get in touch with you in an emergency.

I will be traveling to several countries this summer. I've got a passport, but are there any other entry requirements that I need to be aware of?

Every country's entry requirements can be different. You should inquire about entry visas for each country you will be visiting. Visit the Department of State's Bureau of Consular Affairs for information on entry requirements.
