As part of membership, travelers and expatriates can access a wealth of destination-specific information to help prepare and make informed decisions on their health and safety. Our members can log on online or call an assistance center to obtain:
- Medical information: topics include vaccination requirements, infectious diseases common in destinations, food and water safety, and tips on staying healthy while abroad.
- Travel information: includes country and city profiles, cultural issues and etiquette, embassies and consulates, passport and visa requirements, driving safety and internal transportation recommendations, currency, weather and appropriate dress, compatibility of electrical items, tips for business women, calendar of local events and holidays, and more.
- Security information provided as part of our joint venture with Control Risks: includes proprietary risk ratings for countries and cities, profiles on personal safety, petty crime, kidnapping, violent crime, social unrest, rule of law, and corruption; situational developments, special incident advisories, and travel alerts.
This information is available for hundreds of destinations, countries, and cities worldwide. Members with specific questions on their health, security, or on a general travel situation, can call any International SOS assistance center to get prompt answers from our experts.
