Humanitarian Travel Tips

 

Sign passport and fill in the emergency information:
Make sure you have a signed, valid passport and a visa, if required, and fill in the emergency information page of your passport.

 

Leave copies of itinerary and passport data page:
Leave copies of your itinerary, passport data page and visas with your sponsoring organization, family or friends, so you can be contacted in case of an emergency.

 

Check your overseas medical insurance coverage:
Ask your medical insurance company if your policy applies overseas, and if it covers emergency expenses such as medical evacuation. If it does not, consider supplemental insurance.  More about: Humanitarian Travel Insurance

 

Familiarize yourself with local conditions and laws:
While in a foreign country, you are subject to its laws. The State Department website has useful travel safety  information about the countries you will visit.

 

Take precautions to avoid being a target of crime:
To avoid being a target of crime, do not wear conspicuous clothing or jewelry and do not carry excessive amounts of money. Also, do not leave unattended luggage in public areas and do not accept packages from strangers.

 

Contact a U.S. Embassy or Consulate in an emergency:
Consular personnel at U.S. Embassies and Consulates abroad and in the U.S. are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, to provide emergency assistance to U.S. citizens.  Also note that the Office of Overseas Citizen Services in the State Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs may be reached for assistance with emergencies at 1-888-407-4747, if calling from the U.S. or Canada, or 202-501-4444, if calling from overseas.
