We’ve created a generic checklist for taking international trips out of the United States. There may be some steps that do not apply to you, and there may be additional steps that apply to your specific situation. The important thing is to have a checklist, so perhaps ours simply provides food for thought as you create your own. We suggest that you print the checklist, perhaps assign certain tasks to fellow travelers, if applicable, and start early! Our hope is that our checklist allows you to enjoy the planning process more by reducing the stress and time spent thinking of all the things you have to do before you leave. Bon Voyage!
