American Citizens can register with the US Government when traveling overseas

The Department of State has created a secure website where American citizens
planning to travel overseas can register on line with the U.S. Government.

This system replaces the requirement for Americans to register directly with
the Embassy in the country where they plan to travel to or reside in. All
Embassies and Consulates have access to the website and can monitor who is
in their consular district.

For one-semester students, you would register as a short-term traveler.
Students studying abroad for the year would register as long-term travelers.

Please register with the U.S. Government on-line.
This website will walk you through the registration process."

State Department Launches "Students Abroad"
Web Site

The U.S. State Department has launched Students Abroad, a Web site designed to offer college-age Americans a one-stop reference for international travel. Resources target students, their parents, education abroad professionals, and universities. The site provides Country Specific Information, tips for safe travel, and other important information about traveling and living overseas. Students may download flyers called go! guides as well as a Tips to Go Wallet Card.

Driving Dangers Abroad

One of the continuing safety challenge abroad is road safety.  This article reinforces the importance of looking closely at transportation planning, road travel in particular, as you consider potential for injury or death of travelers (students) during study abroad.
