Travel advice

The USA is vast and diverse, with varying laws, cultures, and climates. This webpage offers guidance for safe travel based on national and international government sources. However, we cannot assume liability for damages or injuries. Despite following recommended precautions, unforeseeable events may occur. You are ultimately responsible for your safety at all times.

Proper preparation

Although there are currently no travel restrictions for the United States, this does not mean that there are no potential risks for travelers. Therefore, it is crucial to embark on your journey well-prepared. One important aspect of preparation is verifying that you possess the required travel documents, such as a valid passport and an appropriate US visa.

Insurances and travel documents

A valid passport and USA visa are essential for non-American or Canadian passport holders, though tourists and business travelers may be eligible for an ESTA instead. This electronic visa is valid for up to two years, with a maximum stay of 90 consecutive days, and is linked to a specific passport.

Comprehensive travel insurance, including healthcare coverage, is crucial due to high healthcare costs in the United States. Consult an insurance company for appropriate coverage options.

Foreign nationals may need an International Driving Permit (IDP) alongside their driver’s license to drive in certain US states. Obtain an IDP before departure and carry both licenses while driving.

When applying for an ESTA through esta-global.com, consider registering your trip with the embassy for updates on important developments. Don’t forget to de-register after leaving the United States.

American safety recommendations

Crime can be common in the United States, so it’s important to follow travel advice to minimize risks. Laws, regulations, customs, and values may differ across states, so always comply with the local laws in the state you visit.

Customs and Laws

The legal age for purchasing and consuming alcohol in the US is 21 for all spirits, and some states allow those 18 and older to buy beer, wine, or low-alcohol beverages. Be aware of age limits when traveling between states. Using or selling illegal drugs is punishable by imprisonment or fines, with penalties varying by state. This includes marijuana, which is legal in some states but not others. As opinions on the LGBT community differ significantly, research the views in the areas you plan to visit.

Protection and Safety

  1. Never leave your passport and important documents unattended, including in a car, as criminals often target tourist vehicles.
  2. Carry essentials like phones, wallets, and passports on you, rather than in a separate bag, especially in South Florida where theft risk is higher.
  3. Avoid dimly lit and quiet areas, especially when alone or after dark. Shootings, while rare, do occur in the US, and firearms can be legally carried. Stay alert and avoid risky situations, even though violence is typically not aimed at tourists.
  4. Steer clear of slums in major cities, particularly after dark. Some neighborhoods in New York, Boston, Chicago, San Francisco, and Houston have high crime rates. Dial 911 in emergencies and contact the embassy at +44 20 7499 9000 if needed.
