The U.S. Embassy in Colombo 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 Sri Lanka or Maldives are up-to-date. If you are not able to make those changes yourself, you can reach out to us at ColomboACS@state.gov and we will assist you.
If you are visiting or living in Sri Lanka or Maldives, 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 the U.S. Embassy keep you updated on general information related to American citizens, such as voter registration.
- Help family and friends get in touch with you in an emergency.
