U.S. Department of State Resources

The U.S. Department of State has been issuing periodic "Worldwide Caution" public announcements since September 2001. This announcement underscores the importance for Americans living and traveling abroad to remain vigilant and security conscious.

Cautions Vs. Warnings

It is important to note that cautionary notices are not the same as "travel warnings." Cautions remind all persons abroad to be careful. Warnings advise against travel to a particular country or region for specific reasons.


We advise all students studying abroad to consult the State Department website on a regular basis. This site includes valuable information about countries throughout the world.
