The information in Consular Information Sheets is usually prepared by staff in the nearest US Embassy or Consulate.
Consular Information Sheets, which can be read online, contain recent information about each country's:
- Entry and exit requirements
- Safety and security
- Crime profile
- Information for victims of crime
- Medical facilities and health information
- Traffic safety and road conditions
- Aviation safety
For your own safety, it's important to view Consular Information Sheets on any countries you intend to visit so you can be apprised of situations you might encounter.
In addition, read Current Travel Warnings, also produced by the United States Department of State. These highlight countries where travel is exceptionally dangerous. They are issued about countries the State Department recommends that Americans avoid visiting.
