Smart Traveler Enrollment Program
All U.S. citizens should register themselves with the U.S. Embassy before departure from the U.S. In the event of international, political, or family emergencies, or in the event that your passport is lost or stolen, the U.S. Embassy is much better able to assist registered citizens. Please visit the Department of State’s website and follow this link to register.
Print the confirmation page after you have registered; leave one copy at home and take one with you. Students of other nationalities should check with their own embassies to see if it is possible to register prior to departure.
