International Travel: How to Prepare for Your Trip Online
Did you know you can use the Government Printing Office’s online library of International Travel documents (i.e. iCan…) to prepare for your trip? The GPO has more than 2,000 eligible documents (at no cost) in 5 languages: English, Spanish, French, Portuguese and Russian. The options are extensive: everything from driver’s licenses and passports to visas, visas required for flights or mail deliveries, official notices or insurance forms are available at the GPO Web site.
When you check out a document, you may be asked to provide information about yourself and your trip. You are required to accept the terms and conditions. The license or passport you get online may change, after you have returned from your travel.
The World Travel Information Network is a worldwide resource on all issues relating to international travel. WPIN has accurate, well-organized, keyword-rich information from nearly 300 governmental bodies around the world. In addition to information on visas, passports, plane tickets, passports and travel regulations, The Travel Research Network has specific information for planning group travel, immigration issues (e.g. USFA or Bilateral Association) and travel advisories. There is also a booklet listing travel advisories (for countries around the world).
