Registering at the Embassy
In addition to securing a visa, all students who are U.S. citizens are required to register themselves with the U.S. Embassy in their host country before departure from the U.S. In the event of international, political, or family emergencies, or in the event that a passport is lost or stolen, the U.S. Embassy will be much better able to assist registered students. Please visit the Department of State’s website and follow the links to register: http://travelregistration.state.gov. Registration is fast and costs nothing. Please print the confirmation page after you have registered and keep it for your records. Students of other nationalities should check with their own embassies to see if it is possible to register prior to departure.
