Register your Travel Plans with the State Dept.

Enroll in the SMART TRAVELER ENROLLMENT PROGRAM (STEP) to make sure 'big brother' knows where you are.  It only takes a few minutes to register to receive the latest travel updates and information before during and after our trip.
When you sign up, you will automatically receive the most current information they compile about Tanzania.  You will also receive updates, including Travel Warnings and Travel Alerts (where appropriate).  You only need to sign up once, and then you can add and delete trips from your account based on your current travel plans!

Stay Connected.

By connecting with us on the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program, they will be able to assist you better in the case of an emergency, such as if you lose your passport or it is stolen while you are abroad.
They also assist U.S. citizens in other emergencies, such as in natural disasters.  
The travel and contact information you enter into the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program will make it easier for consular officers in U.S. embassies and consulates around the world to contact you and your loved ones during an emergency —including situations where your family or friends in the U.S. are having problems trying to contact you with important news.

Note: In Tanzania, the government there seems to do the least possible for many of its will see what I mean when you arrive.  So I am so geeked to live in a country where there is a service that helps me know that someone has my back no matter where in the world I go (with in reason...I am sure). 
 Ok, ok, I just became a citizen 3 years ago so I am still jazzed about things like this!!!
