All travelers should register their travel abroad with the U.S. State Department’s travel registration site. In doing so, if you are victim of crime, or are in an emergency or crisis situation, in the country you are traveling the local U.S. Embassy would be in a better position to assist you.

Travel registration is a free service provided by the U.S. Government to U.S. citizens who are traveling to, or living in, a foreign country.
