American Citizens Enrollment

The State Department operates a secure online travel enrollment website Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) which allows American citizens to record foreign travel and residence information. This web-based travel enrollment system has replaced AIT's paper and email enrollment systems.

American citizens visiting or living in Taiwan are encouraged to sign up  with Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP). Enrollment enables AIT to contact you in the event of a family or personal emergency, and would help AIT locate and assist American citizens during any large-scale emergency in Taiwan.

U.S. Citizens around the world can access this site directly. If you are already enrolled with AIT, please update your enrollment online to ensure AIT has your current information.

Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) allows you to enroll and update your contact information online at any time, making it easier for you to keep your information current. The site also provides up-to-date travel information customized to your travel itinerary. The data you provide is secured behind Department of State firewalls, accessed only by cleared State Department personnel, and is protected by the Privacy Act. Information on the Privacy Act is available on the enrollment web page.

The Department of State would like your feedback regarding the enrollment service. If you encounter any difficulties or have any questions about the enrollment process, please e-mail: If you have questions about your enrollment with AIT, or other questions specific to Taiwan, please email

AIT maintains a subscription-based e-mail group to deliver notices from AIT about matters that are of concern to American citizens visiting or living in Taiwan. To subscribe, send a blank e-mail to
