The Smart Traveler Enrollment Program 

The State Department recently launched a secure online travel registration website which will allow you, as an American citizen, to record foreign trip and residence information that the Department of State can use to communicate with you and assist you in case of an emergency.

  • U.S. citizens around the world who travel or reside abroad can access this site either through a link on or directly at the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program home page. We invite you to register yourself and your family and get acquainted with the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program.
  • The new Smart Traveler Enrollment Program for American citizens allows you to enroll and update your contact information on the Internet at any time, making it easier for you to keep your information current. The site also provides you with up-to-date travel information customized to your unique travel agenda and itinerary. The data you provide is secured behind Department of State firewalls, accessed only by cleared personnel in Embassies, Consulates, and the Department of State, and releasable only under the provisions of the Privacy Act.
