Infinity Incentive Group knows that any situation that comes up might present a traveler with the need to be able to easily to prove their citizenship, especially if leaving the country. A good rule of thumb is to make copies of important travel documents and store them in a separate place from the originals, as well as, give another set to a travel companion or someone trusted back home who can get a copy to the proper authorities quickly if the traveler is in need. Another option is to email a back-up copy to oneself. Traveler's that are properly prepared expedite the process of getting new documents.
3. Always be prepared for any emergency that comes up. Acquire the proper contact information for the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate for the destination. Here, there are personnel on site available for any emergency assistance 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
4. Infinity Incentive Group recommends for those who plan to drive overseas, that they be mindful they may need to obtain an International Driving Permit, also known as an IDP, to be compliant with laws governing the country traveling in.
