A record number of Americans are expected to have traveled to other countries in 2018, buoyed by a strong dollar and a surging economy.

 

In 2017, the number of U.S. visits overseas rose by 9.1% from the previous year to 38.3 million, according to data from U.S. Department of Commerce, International Trade Administration, and the National Travel and Tourism Office. The number of visits to Europe, at nearly 16 million in 2017, climbed 16% — the most of any region.

 

With so many Americans traveling, it would be in their best interest to check the U.S. State Department’s website for travel advisories, which the department is constantly updating. On Jan. 29, the department raised the caution advisory for Venezuela to Level 4, or “do not travel,” because of the ongoing turmoil in that country.

 

The advisories are intended to keep Americans who are traveling aware of potential terrorist attacks, civil unrest, and level and nature of crime in other nations.
