Ensure a supply of medication for the duration of your trip and check that it is legal to bring into your destination country

If you have prescription medication, plan ahead and obtain prescriptions from your primary physician for the entire duration of your stay if possible. Some medications may not be readily available overseas. Some medications that are common in the U.S. may not have the same status in other countries and may even be illegal. Check the U.S. State Department Country Information page for restrictions.
