Grab your notebook and prepare to copy. The first edition of this series, “The CIA operative’s guide to safe travel,” received an overwhelming response and was featured in Entrepreneur, Travel and Leisure, and Business Insider to name a few publications. Welcome to part two of the series. I hope you enjoy it and learn something that will keep you safe from harm’s way. Enjoy, and remain vigilant!
1. Be proactive, not reactive
Make copies of your passport, medical card, credit cards, and travel itinerary. Give a copy to a friend back home and keep a copy with you. Email any pertinent information to yourself through a web-based email account so you can get it from any hotel or Internet café if needed. Check in with the U.S. embassy when you arrive.
