Information for Travelers
American Citizen Registration

The Embassy urges all American citizens, even those visiting India for a short time, to register with the Embassy’s Consular Section. In the event of an emergency, the Embassy will provide information and other critical assistance to American citizens. Registration is the only way to guarantee that the Embassy is aware of your presence in the country and is able to contact you and assist you in such circumstances.

American citizens may now register online at https://travelregistration.state.gov/ibrs. Registration is for American citizens only.

The Embassy's primary means of communication with American citizens in India during an emergency is our warden system. The warden system consists of American citizens who volunteer to disseminate information passed on from time to time by the Embassy to other American citizens in the country. We also distribute this information directly via e-mail to any American citizen who asks to be included in our warden notification network by registering with us online or in person. To see recent messages sent under the warden system, please click here.

Please visit the State Department's Web Page on Emergency Preparedness. A little planning and preparation can be very helpful in an emergency situation.

On one hand it makes me feel like a weak schoolboy, on the other hand if I get arrested, I'd call anybody who'd answer the phone, I'd even call the german consulate if it'd help

Well, maybe not the German, but you get my drift

No insult to my slavic brothers, I'm sure they'd care ;-)

This registration has been possible on the US State Dept's website for quite some time. However I know more than a few US travelers to India who refuse to do this, and don't see any reason to do it.....let's just say they did not vote for the current administration....they think it sounds too much like "Big Brother".....

Who trusts the American government to keep them safe in an emergency, to provide helpful information, and to act efficiently and quickly?

Bush's vaunted Department of Homeland Security couldn't get people out of New Orleans. Do you think the anemic State Department will help you in India?

I travel to India and other places to GET AWAY from these morons. The last thing I'm going to do is give the consulate my particulars.

Germans are not slavic.

Really, what is the point of posts like these?

It is called humor, why do you whine so much?

Why don't you tend to your business and quit trying to moderate me to your likes, I don't know you, don't care to know you nor have I ever criticized your posts

I don't care enough

Merchant, I hope your use of the word "you" was not directed toward me since it came after my post.

I didn't register with the State Dept. when I went. and I didn't vote for Pres. Shrub either. find an American in India in case of an emergency? the govt. can't even catch Osama.
