Travel Information and Messages to U.S. Citizens
Millions of Americans travel abroad every year and encounter no difficulties. However, U.S. embassies and consulates assist nearly 200,000 Americans each year who are victims of crime, accident, or illness, or whose family and friends need to contact them in an emergency. When an emergency happens or if natural disaster, terrorism, or civil unrest strikes during your foreign travel, the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate can be your source of assistance and information. By informing us about your trip or residence abroad, you help the embassy locate you when you might need them the most. Signing up is voluntary and costs nothing, but it should be a big part of your travel planning and security.
Nepal is a country with frequent natural disasters and political uncertainty. U.S. citizens who are planning to travel to Nepal are strongly encouraged to enroll with the U.S. Embassy, either by completing the online form or by stopping by the Consular Section of the Embassy and completing a paper form.
