Drug use is not supported at any time. As a reminder, the United States Embassy will not assist if an arrest is a result of illegal substances. 

Alcohol consumption and alcohol content can vary from country to country. In some locations, the consumption of alcohol is not permitted. Be aware of any religious holidays, cultural norms, and laws about alcohol consumption. Some areas may not permit women drinking in public.

Make yourself aware of the cultural norms when it comes to alcohol consumption. Ask yourself a few questions:

  • Do people have just one pint with dinner or out with friends?
  • How is public intoxication or public consumption viewed in your host country?
  • For more information about alcohol abroad, please see the International Alliance for Responsible Drinking.

When consuming alcohol, you are reminded to do so responsibly. Drinks should never be left unattended and you should always have someone accompany you on a night out.
