What you need to know about International Travel

From the United States to South America and Europe, the best experiences come from traveling internationally. However, before you decide to book your adventurous journey across the globe, there are plenty of things you need to keep in mind when jumping on that plane and completing your international travel expedition. Straight from the U.S. Department of State, here is some international travel information that you should keep in mind.

Travel Warnings: Travel warnings are issued when the State Departminternationaltravelent recommends Americans to avoid travel in a particular country. This is based on relevant information that the state is aware of.

Travel Alerts: Travel alerts are informational alerts from the state to American travelers. These alerts may be about potential terrorist threats, short-term risks, etc. and are made when there is a specific threat that cannot be countered.

Country Specific Information: This is information made available by the state about every country in the world. (Yes, EVERY country!) This specific information may include the location of the U.S. embassy or consulate in each country, health conditions, unusual currency and entry regulations, crime and security information, drug penalties, or minor political disturbances. This does not offer advice as to which country to travel to, but it gives information that is helpful for travelers in deciding which specific country they would like to venture to.
