When Traveling Abroad, Helplines Provide Guidance During Emergencies and Other Instances
Traveling abroad? CEPAR urges you to plan your travel safely and carefully, and also take note of new phone numbers for medical and security assistance overseas.

Before going out of the country, CEPAR also recommends all faculty, staff and students at the university and health system register with the Johns Hopkins International Travel Registry (JHITR). The registry will help you better prepare for a trip abroad and help Johns Hopkins gather important data on university-related activities worldwide. If you have booked your travel reservations through the Johns Hopkins-managed travel program, you do not need to enter your travel data into the JHITR.
Those traveling abroad may also consider registering with the U.S. Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). This program allows U.S. citizens to enroll with the nearest U.S. Embassy or consulate, receive safety and security information, and help the U.S. Embassy, family and friends contact them in case of an emergency.
