Routine Message: Annual Verification of the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP)
November 24, 2021

Event:  Enroll in or update your information in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP)

The U.S. Embassy in Baghdad is conducting an annual verification of STEP enrollments.  Please log in to your STEP account to verify that your profile, phone numbers, email address, travel dates, and location in Iraq are current.  If you are not able to make those changes yourself, you can reach out to us at BaghdadACS@state.gov, and we can make the update for you.

If you are visiting or living in Iraq, and have not yet enrolled in STEP, we strongly encourage you to do so.  STEP is a free service to allow U.S. citizens and nationals traveling and living abroad to enroll their trip with the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate.

Benefits of Enrolling in STEP:

  • Receive important information from the Embassy about safety conditions in your destination country, helping you make informed decisions about your travel plans.
  • Help the U.S. Embassy contact you in an emergency, whether natural disaster, civil unrest, or family emergency.
  • Help family and friends get in touch with you in an emergency.

Stay Informed, Stay Connected, Stay Safe!
