The State Department has launched an iPhone app called Smart Traveler that lets U.S. travelers see official country information, travel alerts, travel warnings, maps, U.S. embassy locations and more when planning trips.
Smart Traveler also provides access to the State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). Free STEP enrollment enables the State Department to better assist travelers in emergencies such as natural disasters, unrest in foreign countries, or lost/stolen passports overseas. During your travels, STEP can help a person reach their family and friends in an emergency.
Smart Traveler also provides quick access to the Department’s Consular Affairs Facebook and Twitter pages
