State Department Travel Warnings and Alerts
Notre Dame International encourages all Notre Dame travelers to check the U.S. Department of State's Travel Warnings and Travel Alerts page when planning international trips. Travel Warnings are issued when you should consider very carefully whether you should go to a country at all and are issued for such reasons as unstable government, civil war, ongoing intense crime or violence, or frequent terrorist attacks. Travel Alerts are issued for short-term events you should be aware of, such as an election season that is bound to have many strikes, demonstrations, or disturbances; a health alert like an outbreak of H1N1; or evidence of an elevated risk of terrorist attacks. The feed below displays the most recent Warnings and Alerts and links to further explanation of each, as well as the U.S. Department of State's comprehensive list.
