Travel Tips as you prepare for International Travel

  1. Check your passport and apply for any necessary visas.
    While it’s not necessary to memorize your passport’s expiration date, it’s best to take a look at it—and to verify that you know where your passport is stored—before making any international travel plans. Generally speaking, you want your passport to be valid for at least six months after entering a foreign country, though some nations will let you get away with less; refer to the State Department’s website for full details, organized by country. If its expiration date is approaching, you’ll need to renew your passport before your next overseas trip.
  2. Get vaccinated, stock up on medicine and current medical reports
    Depending on where you’re going, you may need to get special vaccines or medications as a precaution against various diseases. If you have any pre-existing condition ensure to carry with you the most current comprehensive and up-to-date medical recommendations and reports. In addition, if you routinely take any prescription medication, make sure you have enough to cover the duration of your travels so that you don’t run out while you’re overseas. Finally—and especially if you’re going to any remote regions—it’s wise to pack non-prescription medicines (aspirin, Imodium, etc.) that may not be easy to find.
  3. Check for travel warnings/advisories and register your trip.
    Before you travel abroad, refer to the State Department’s Program for Travel Alerts .This are short-term events we think you should know about when planning travel to a country and Travel Warnings.  Travel Warning are issued when they want you to consider very carefully whether you should go to a country at all.”). It’s worth checking for these notices both before you book a trip and just before you depart.
  4. Make copies of travel documents.Most importantly, have at least one colour copy of your passport’s ID page stored somewhere safe and separate from your passport. You should also make copies of any visas that pertain to your current travels. Hotel reservations, train ticket confirmations, and all other travel documents should be copied as well. In this digital age, it is very convenient (and eco-friendly) to only have digital copies of these documents handy.
  5. Research entrance and exit fees.
    Regardless of whether a country requires you to obtain a tourist visa, it may levy an entrance and/or exit fee against you. For example, Argentina allows U.S. citizens to visit for up to ninety days without a visa, but a $160 “reciprocity fee” must be paid before entering the country—you won’t be allowed in without a copy of the receipt. Once again, the Consular Information Program is the most reliable resource for determining whether a country charges these fees; on any country page, look under the Entry, and Exit & Visa Requirements tab for complete information.
  6. Buy health and travel insurance.
    Before you travel, check your health insurance policy to see if it includes international coverage. If not, consider buying a short-term policy that will cover you while you’re abroad, in case something should happen. Similarly, a smart way to protect your trip and your money is to purchase travel insurance.
