Before traveling to Eritrea or any other country, the U.S. Department of State encourages all Americans to check its web site on Tips for Traveling Abroad and enroll in the Safe Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).
For more specific information on Eritrea, visit the Department’s Country Specific Information on Eritrea. This document includes the location of the U.S. embassy, immigration procedures, health conditions, crime and security information, road safety, currency and entry regulations, and drug penalties.
Prior to traveling, U.S. Citizens are encouraged to read the Department’s current Travel Warnings. Travel Alerts are issued when the State Department recommends that Americans avoid a certain country. The State Department issues Travel Alerts to disseminate information quickly about terrorist threats and other relatively short-term conditions that pose significant risks or disruptions to U.S. citizens.
