Students traveling abroad over spring break should take some simple steps to help themselves remain safe and enjoy their time in another country. It’s important to check out the U.S. Department of State’s website to see if a travel alert or advisory has been issued in the country to which you are traveling, and follow any tips or advice that may be provided. Make sure all your international travel documents are in order, including your passport, and know the location of the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate in case of emergency. Remember to register your trip abroad with The Smart Traveler Enrollment Program, so the Department of State can better assist you in an emergency. The website also has loads of information about passports, health and safety issues and traveling smart.
