Consular Information Sheets, Travel Warnings & Public Announcements

The Department of State issues Consular Information Sheets, Travel Warnings and Public Announcements to apprise U.S. citizens of worldwide conditions that may impact on their travel health and safety. The following descriptions are courtesy of the State Department. Note that the term "Travel Advisory" is no longer in use.

If you plan travel to an area or country where there is some concern about existing conditions, find out if there is a warning or public announcement by contacting the Department of State's Citizens Emergency Center at 202-647-5225 or by accessing the State Department's information on a country-name-basis from an interface on Armchair World. In rapidly developing situations there may be a slight time lag between the condition and posting of the warning.
