While traveling, there are a few important things you must remember.
Register with your local US Consulate or Embassy. A list of US Embassies around the world can be found at http://www.usembassy.gov/

NYU Traveler is a web-based portal linked to NYU's travel safety service, Worldcue. All members of the NYU community should use this site to either make your travel arrangements or register travel plans made through other means. Please remember to book and/or register all NYU-related travel with NYU Traveler.
In addition to contacting local authorities, for overseas emergencies call NYU’s Department of Public Safety in New York at 011-212-988-2222. Public Safety regularly assists with international emergencies.
In the event the problem is medical or wellness related, the Crisis Response Counselor (CRC) on duty will be contacted. Each NYU Academic site has Health and Safety information posted on their page: http://www.nyu.edu/global/global-academic-centers.html
