Washington, DC - As we approach the holidays, the U.S. Department of State reminds U.S. citizens of our Worldwide Travel Alert, issued on November 23, and the continuing need to exercise caution during the holiday season.

Enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive security messages and make it easier to communicate with you in an emergency.
