Harvard Travel Assist Resources
Country Guides & Alerts
The Harvard Travel Assist program's online portal is a great place to start your pre-departure research. It provides a lot of country-specific information in one place. All Harvard affiliates have access to the portal; simply log in with your HarvardKEY to get started.
Create country and city reports that output as PDFs, webpages, and email reports. Information includes the latest headlines, social and business etiquette, crime and safety, embassy locations, vaccinations, airline safety, natural disasters, and travel advice and advisories.
Sign up to receive email alerts and be notified of major incidents and events in your area that could impact your travel, including demonstrations, transportation, disease outbreak, crime, natural occurrences, political information, and road travel, among others.
Review country and city summaries, recent incidents, local laws and customs, visa requirements, locations of hospitals and embassies, and the use of currency and credit cards.
