Smart Travel Enrollment Program

We cannot assist you if we do not know where you are.

Online Registration for the ‘Smart Travel Enrollment Program

The State Department’s online registration website  allows U.S. citizens to record foreign trip and residence information that the State Department can use to communicate with and assist citizens in an emergency.

U.S. citizens who travel or reside abroad can also access this site. We invite you to register yourself and your family and become acquainted with travel registration. If you are already registered with this Embassy/Consulate, please re-register online to update your records. Registration is particularly important for those who plan to stay in a country longer than one month.

The online travel registration service for U.S. citizens allows you to register and update your own records, making it easier for you to keep your information current. This also includes your travel itineraries.

The data you provide is completely secure, and is held behind State Department firewalls, accessed only by cleared personnel in Embassies, Consulates, and the State Department, and releasable only under provisions of the Privacy Act.
