Medical Care
It is a good idea to carry an up-to-date record of known allergies and/or chronic medical problems so that emergency treatment, if necessary, can be carried out with minimal risk to your health. Medical treatment is easily accessible in New Orleans.

Please plan to bring all prescription medications that you will require for the entire trip. All essential medications need to be in their original containers, and should always be packed in your carry-on luggage.

As in many major cities of the world, pick-pocketing and bag-snatching can occur in New Orleans. Please be careful, and please keep your cash and credit cards safe. Keep your passport and other valuables in a safe place and leave expensive jewelry at home.

Also, bring photocopies of your ID or passport, credit cards, and other important documents and keep them separate from the originals.

As a matter of common courtesy, please ask permission from anyone you wish to photograph.
