STEP’s consular officers, based all around the world, compile country-specific information, travel alerts, travel warnings, fact sheets, and emergency messages, so can stay on top of what’s happening in a country you are visiting or plan to visit. An informed traveler is a safe traveler.
The enrollment process is easy and free, if not a bit counter-intuitive. You start by going to the SMART Enrollment page at step.state.gov. Click Create Account in the top right-hand corner. You’ll then agree to the terms, create a username and password, and provide answers to question regarding your identification.
Once you’ve created an account, you can add information about your next trip. Voila! You’re ready to go and you’re safer already!
