What is STEP?

The Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) is a free service to allow U.S. citizens and nationals traveling and living abroad to enroll their trip with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate.

What are the Benefits of Enrolling in STEP?

  • Help the U.S. Embassy contact you in an emergency, whether it is a natural disaster, civil unrest, or a family emergency.
  • Help family and friends get in touch with you in an emergency.
