Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP)
We strongly encourage all U.S. citizens living or traveling in Slovenia to register with the State Department.
Your enrollment provides overseas contact information and itinerary, your passport information, and the name and phone/email address of someone you want us to contact in case you have any trouble.
Why you should enroll
We use this information in several ways, all to help you:
if you go missing, then we know your itinerary and where to start looking
if you are involved in an accident, then we know who you want contacted
if someone back home wants to pass an emergency message to you, then we are more likely to be able to find you and pass along that message
if you lose your passport, then we will already have your passport information and can more easily issue you a new one
if there is a broader emergency, then we can email you security-related information
if for any reason we ever needed to evacuate all of the Americans out of Slovenia, then we will know to look for you

If you are traveling to multiple countries, this secure system distributes your information to all the U.S. Embassies and Consulates where you will be. If you indicate that your overseas trip is only for a limited duration, then the system automatically deletes your information shortly after your trip concludes. The site also provides up-to-date travel information customized to your unique travel agenda and itinerary.
