If you’re planning a trip abroad, one of the first things you should consider is whether your destination has a travel advisory for U.S. travelers. Conditions in countries can change at anytime, so it’s important to stay up-to-date with the latest for your safety and to map out a contingency plan.

 

Here’s what you need to know about the latest travel advisories issued by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs.

 

Mexico– A Level 2 Travel Advisory has been issued for Mexico due to crime. According to the advisory, violent crimes such as homicide, kidnapping, carjacking, and robbery is widespread. Officials are asking tourists not to visit Colima, Guerrero, Michoacan, Sinaloa, and Tamaulipas, due to crime.

 

For other states, tourists should use toll roads, avoid driving at night, use caution when visiting local bars, and casinos, and avoid wearing jewelry. In addition, visitors are asked to remain extra vigilant when visiting banks or ATMs.

Hungary – A Level 1 Travel Advisory has been issued for travel to Hungary following recent demonstrations against the government in two locations near Budapest. A Level 1 advisory means travelers should exercise normal precautions.

 

Officials recommend that travelers avoid demonstration routes, avoid crowds, and monitor local media for updates.

 

Estonia – A Level 1 Travel Advisory has been issued for Estonia as well. The most recent message is in regards to guidance on personal laptops and electronic devices.

Embassy officials are urging people to leave personal devices at home or in your accommodation since the devices will not be permitted in The U.S. Embassy in Estonia.

 

To ensure your safety, it’s best to have a checklist that includes details about health precautions, and crisis planning, according to the U.S. Department of State’s website. Officials recommend enrolling safety and security alerts, mapping out the consulates in your country of travel, and be sure to have health insurance before traveling.
