How to Register with the Department of State Before Your Trip
A good practice when traveling abroad is to register your trip with the Department of State. When you register your trip to Poland using the Department of State’s website, they will then pass this information on to the local U.S. Embassy in Poland. Study Abroad Poland requires that all students complete this process before departure. Follow our easy steps below!
To begin, visit this link: https://travelregistration.state.gov/ibrs/ui/
First you have to make an account. This is a general account with the Department of State. You can keep this account for the rest of your life. If they ask for your address, it should be your permanent address in the U.S.
Step 1: Below where it says “Log In” you should click on “If not, click here to create an account” and then it will give you instructions on how to create an account.
Step 2: In the first step you will have to choose a log-in name, password and security question. Fill in the information, and click “Next.”
Step 3: In the next steps you will need to fill in your Personal Information, Passport Information, Contact Information, Privacy Information, and then finally Confirm.
Step 4: After you do that you should then “Register a Trip.” This is where you will fill out specific information about your stay in Poland. Here is where they will ask you for your local address and phone number in Poland. They will then take this information and send it to the American Embassy in Poland.
Please keep in mind that you can use this function to register any trips you will make in the future.
Please let Study Abroad Poland know once you have successfully registered with the Department of State.
Enjoy your stay in Poland!
