STEP Notification Update:  We have made a temporary change to email messaging for the health and safety of all Americans unexpectedly kept abroad during the COVID-19 crisis.  To ensure that everyone in Peru is receiving alerts and email updates, it is not possible at this time for STEP registrants to opt-out of receiving messages.  You will still continue to receive important alerts via email even if you “unsubscribe” on STEP.  Normal email message processing will resume at the conclusion of the COVID-19 crisis.

We appreciate your patience as we work hard to identify a range of viable options to bring  #AmericansHome.
