- Did you know that countries recommend registering with your consulate prior international travel or living? By notifying your consulate of your international travel/move, they will know that you are within a particular country should a crisis strike (i.e. hurricane, flood, earthquake, etc.) and can better assist you in notifications, evacuations, etc.
- If you are a U.S. citizen, at the time that you register, you also have the option of receiving email updates pertaining to the country in which you are traveling or living -- like the one that I posted yesterday. These notifications are infrequent -- they aren't flooding your inbox with junk -- and I have found them to contain very useful information. (I assume that other countries' consulates offer the same type of notification system. Feel free to leave a comment here on the blog if you know this to be the case.)
Links to Register for International Travel:
- U.S. Citizens
- Canadian Citizens
- Not intending to leave out other countries -- but this list is endless. If you know your the link to your country's registration website, please leave it as a comment for others to reference.
