The US State Department has issued 13 new travel advisories for the month of June. The latest updates, uploaded to the State Department’s website on May 31, provide information intended to keep American travelers safe and well-informed before they travel. These latest updates feature a handful of countries located in regions that are bound to be among the most popular with American travelers this summer, such as Europe and the Caribbean.

With travel this summer expected to rival pre-pandemic numbers, pre-flight travel advisories are bound to play an important role for those traveling around the world this year. Here’s a look at the countries affected in the latest updates, as well as a summary of what the Travel Advisory System is and how it helps US travelers.

Travel Tips – An explanation for travelers

The Department of State’s Travel Guidelines are useful updates that provide information to travelers about destinations around the world. Each update assigns a risk level to a destination, with level 1 being the lowest risk and level 4 being the highest risk. Warnings are updated frequently as needed, reflecting the ever-changing risks such as crime, terrorism and health concerns present at each destination.

Besides a warning from the State Department, each travel advisory update also contains information from the CDC about the level of Covid-19 at each destination, letting travelers know what they might get if they decide to travel. While they play an important role in keeping travelers informed of real and current threats they may face and should always be consulted, they do not have the legal power to prevent travel – meaning that the decision to travel is ultimately up to the traveler.
