For the month of June, the US State Department has issued 13 new travel advisories. The most recent updates, which were posted on the State Department's website on May 31st, contain information aimed at keeping American travelers secure and informed before their trips. These most recent revisions include a number of destinations in regions like Europe and the Caribbean that are expected to be among the most popular with American tourists this summer.

With summer travel projected to surpass pre-pandemic levels, travel advisories will undoubtedly play a major role in people planning trips throughout the world this year. Here's a rundown of which nations were affected in the most recent updates, as well as a refresher on what the travel advisory system is and how it may aid Americans.

Explanation of Travel Advisories for Passengers

Travel advisories from the State Department are useful updates that advise travelers about destinations all over the world. With Level 1 being the lowest risk level and Level 4 being the greatest risk level, each update provides a risk level to a location. Warnings are updated on a regular basis, as appropriate, to reflect the ever-changing risks of crime, terrorism, and health concerns that each location faces.

Each travel advisory update includes information from the CDC on the level of Covid-19 in each place, as well as a warning from the State Department, so visitors know what they're getting into if they decide to travel. They serve an essential role in keeping passengers informed about real and present hazards they may face, and they should always be contacted, but they have no legal authority to prevent travel, thus the traveler must ultimately decide whether or not to travel.
