Online PR News – 17-March-2009 – – Travel Alerts are issued to disseminate information about short-term conditions, generally within a particular country, that pose imminent risks to the security of U.S. citizens. Natural disasters, terrorist attacks, coups, anniversaries of terrorist events, election-related demonstrations or violence, and high-profile events such as international conferences or regional sports events are examples of conditions that might generate a Travel Alert.

Mexico has experienced a rise in crimes and violence against foreign tourist and business travelers. While much of the violence has occurred in the northern region, near the U.S. border, crimes have also increased throughout the country. "Missionary workers therefore should use precaution when traveling and working in Mexico and throughout the world.”, says Mike Chiango, President of Premier Agents Group, LLC. Premier Agents Group, LLC is international insurance broker providing kidnap and ransom insurance for missionary workers and other world travelers. “Travelers should always check out the U.S. state departments web site prior to taking on any travel assignment. The web site provides up to date internal conditions of 'hot spots' around the world," he says. To read the full alert from the U.S. State Departments web site.

In particular, the U.S. State department warns of kidnap and ransom. In recent years, dozens of U.S. citizens have been kidnapped across Mexico,many of these cases remain unresolved. "We suggests that missionary workers traveling to Mexico and other countries also obtain a kidnap and ransom insurance plan. The cost of the plan is nominal in comparison to the value and security it offers. The plan provides funding for the safe release of a victim but more importantly it provides a crisis management team that is trained in hostage release. These trained professionals can make all the difference in the world in obtaining a safe release of your loved ones,” says Mr. Chiango.
