Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Holiday Travel Advisory

In the lead up to the holiday season, AIT would like to take this opportunity to remind U.S. citizens in Taiwan planning international travel to remain vigilant to the continuing threat of terrorist actions and violence against U.S. citizens and interests around the world.

The Department of State recently issued an updated Travel Alert for Europe advising U.S. citizens to exercise caution during festivals, events, and outdoor markets.

As you plan your travels, check the State Department’s travel website for the latest Worldwide Caution, Travel Warnings, and Travel Alerts, as well as useful Country Specific Information.

Enroll your trip in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive security messages and make it easier to locate you in an emergency.

From everyone at AIT, Happy Holidays and safe travels!
