Enrolling in the U.S. State Department Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) when traveling abroad is an excellent tool to help minimize risk by registering American travelers directly with consulate resources along their itinerary.
Travelers enrolled in STEP are able to make easier connections to emergency services during natural disasters, civil unrest or even during a family crisis. In addition, participants receive timely, accurate and relevant Travel Advisories from local sources.
Without STEP Enrollment you could see significant delays in obtaining consular support in an emergency situation, and some services may be unavailable.
In addition, STEP is a great candidate for your flight department’s safety program guidelines SOP and best practices. Our Global Regulatory Services team can help you customize a plan to make STEP enrollment a standard part of your mission protocol when U.S. travelers are on board, or you can request the service on a per trip basis.
