Smart Traveler, the official State Department app for U.S. travelers,
invites you to see the world with easy access to frequently updated official country information,
travel alerts, travel warnings, maps, U.S. embassy locations, and more.
With Smart Traveler, you can create personal itineraries, add notes, and organize your 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 you in emergencies such as natural disasters,
unrest in foreign countries, or lost/stolen passports overseas. During your travels,
STEP can help your family and friends reach you in an emergency.
Smart Traveler also provides quick access to the Department's Consular Affairs Facebook and Twitter pages.
Ratings and Reviews
App isn't working
This app has provided great information in the past. But I just noticed that some of it isn't working. Clicking on a country gets you to one more screen, but clicking on choices at that screen doesn't have any information. You can't see consulate information or visa requirements or anything else.
Won’t let me sign into STEP
The app offers a link to STEP. It tells me I have exceeded the attempts to sign in and blocks me for 30 minutes. I only entered my name/PW once and it was correct. This is also happening on the direct STEP site so perhaps it’s a STEP issue??
Fairly simple app to use but is sometimes cumbersome when you need to add information to the STEP area.
Unfortunately, cannot access information on Israel as it gives information for Iceland the same that is included in the Iceland tab.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
