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 advisories, U.S. embassy locations, and more.
Smart Traveler also provides access to the State Department's free Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).
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
Great visual ratings for each country!
Not sure what reviewer Xxxxxx€£¥%:( is smokin’ but the country rating system is obviously and clearly displayed. Some people just like to troll.
Anyways, I’ve been using this app off and on for years and the most recent update really modernized it and made it easier to use. As a matter of fact, the rating system is really neat (especially in the Advisories section) because you can clearly see the number of countries belonging to a specific rating. I just hope our government keeps the app updated all the time because it really is useful.
Traveling to Europe
I’m an experienced traveler, but at 63 I prefer to use a tour group. All my needs are met and I fill safe . This app gives me peace of mind when traveling to Europe.
Just knowing where the alerts are on any given day.
Good thought, but needs more frequent updating
The title says it all. I love the idea, I also love the ability to get an idea about the safety of a country that I’m thinking about visiting. However, they need to update these ratings more frequently. As an example, the war in Israel has been raging for over a month now and it still says that it’s a two on a scale of one to four to travel to. Which is exercise increased caution. This should be a four at this point.
