Travel Alert

The U.S. Passports & International Travel has issued a worldwide travel alert prior to the holiday traveling season. This is targeted mostly towards American citizen traveling abroad. Since the recent events around the world we must be more alert when traveling during this busy holiday season.

Here are some tips provided by homeland security under their slogan “when you see something say something”

When you see any suspicious activity contact the local law enforcement. A few examples would be unattended bags or luggage in a busy area like a bus stop, train station or airport. Make sure you keep your bags with you at all time when traveling. A vehicle parked unattended in a busy area or if you see a vehicle parked near a building in a no parking zone or a busy area report it immediately.

When traveling you see a person is hanging around a busy area without any reason possible taking pictures or using binocular checking out the facility this could be difficult to identify with advancement of smart phones it may be hard to determine if this is an innocent act or not. So again contact your local law enforcement let them make the determination.  Your local law enforcement is trained in this area let them make the decision of what is a threat is or not.

The U.S. Passports & International Travel provides a free service called STEP or Smart Traveler Enrollment Program. This is for those of you traveling abroad to enroll their trip to the nearest U.S Embassy or Consulate. Just visit the for more details.

Again please be safe when traveling this holiday season
