Three Tips for First-time International Travelers

  2. 2. Secure a Passport It is imperative that you first apply for a passport prior to making your international travel plans. This documentation will ensure you are able to leave and return to your home country. Immediately make a copy of the passport after you have successfully secured it -- this is never a bad idea, especially for first-time travel.
  3. 3. Conduct proper research Take time to research your desired destination, noting the location's traditions, cultures, notable landmarks, and other details relevant to your visit. You certainly do not want to miss out on aspects of your trip due to a lack of insight. This process does not have to be drawn-out, but it can come in handy down the line.
  4. 4. Pack accordingly Packing is an obvious, but occasionally underestimated part of the travel process. Set aside ample time to pack for your destination's climate, and for all activities and ventures you plan to partake in. Be sure to find a healthy middle ground between under and overpacking, focusing on those items you will not be able to replace or emulate during your trip. You can always reference your research notes for additional insight.
