U.S. citizens planning to visit or reside in Eritrea should enroll with the U.S. Embassy through the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) prior to your travel.
The Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) is a free service to allow U.S. citizens and nationals traveling or residing abroad to enroll their trip with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate. Through enrollment:
- Receive important information from the Embassy about safety conditions in your destination country, helping you make informed decisions about your travel plans.
- Help the U.S. Embassy contact you in an emergency, whether natural disaster, civil unrest, or family emergency.
- Help family and friends get in touch with you in an emergency.
Go to http://step.state.gov/step/ and enroll, please add a valid email address, if you have one.
If you do not have internet access, you may fill out the online U.S. Citizen Registration Form available at the American Center (in the Eritro-German building) and submit it to the Embassy on Thursday afternoons between 2:00-5:00PM.
