Foreign Entry Requirements/Visas
If you are traveling overseas and want to know what you must do to enter a foreign country, we have information on foreign entry requirements and visas. Foreign embassy telephone numbers and addresses are included.
Travel Warnings/Travel Safety Information
Travel Warnings are issued when the State Department recommends that Americans avoid a certain country. The State Department issues Travel Alerts to disseminate information quickly about terrorist threats and other relatively short-term conditions that pose significant risks or disruptions to Americans. The State Department also issues Country Specific Information for every country of the world with information on such matters as the health conditions, crime, unusual currency or entry requirements, any areas of instability, and the location of the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate in the subject country. Check for Travel Warnings or Travel Alerts for the locations that you plan to visit.
