General Safety and Security

Know the risks associated with international travel and your destination. Before traveling, visit the U.S. Department of State webpage for your destination and read all the information under each expandable tab (security, entry requirements, local laws, health, etc.). Seek other pre-travel opportunities to learn more about your destination and program, including exploring the resources below and talking to others who have visited your destination. By deliberately planning your activities with forethought, you can mitigate potential risks.
