International trips made by the President of the United States have become a valuable part of U.S. diplomacy and international relations since such trips were first made in the early 20th century. They are complicated undertakings that require months of planning along with a great deal of coordination and communication. They also involve much ceremony and fuss.

Among the 19th century American social conventions governing political travel was a taboo against international travel. Domestic travel was regarded as a welcome opportunity for presidents to talk with the people who had elected them, but foreign travel was seen in an altogether different light. The general public did not want their president mingling with royalty, visiting grand palaces, or exchanging bows with kings and queens.[1]

This taboo began to erode and break down in the early 20th century, as policy makers at the federal level began to reevaluate the nation's role in international affairs. The first international presidential trip, Theodore Roosevelt's 1906 visit to Panama, signaled a new era in how presidents conducted diplomatic relations with other countries.[2] Woodrow Wilson's trips to Europe in the Aftermath of World War I and his promotion of his own principles for world peace sealed the old taboo's fate.

Changing transportation technologies also played a role in the changing patterns of presidential travel as well. When Wilson traveled to Europe in 1919 aboard the George Washington, the voyage took nine days. Forty years later, Dwight Eisenhower made the same trip by jet in nine hours. Jet aircraft enabled American presidents to travel the globe in ways that would have been impractical if not inconceivable before.[1]

While Eisenhower was the first president to travel by jet (and the first to travel via helicopter as well), the first airplane trips by a sitting president were those of Franklin D. Roosevelt. He made multiple long distance trips abroad by plane, each one an offshoot of Allied diplomatic interactions during World War II. President John F. Kennedy had one of the most memorable trips to Europe during the summer of 1963, only a few months before he was assassinated. His successor, Lyndon B. Johnson preferred travel to Asia. Richard Nixon set a number of firsts, in particular China. Jimmy Carter spent a great deal of time in the Middle East and went on the first state visit to Africa. Ronald Reagan had a number of noteworthy state visits, particularly his summit meetings with Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev.

The frequency and travel distance of presidential international travel has increased dramatically since George H. W. Bush became president in 1989. In 1990 the military version of the Boeing 747, the VC-25, was introduced for the use of the president. The planes have over 4,000 square feet (372 m2) of floor space, a bedroom and a shower, and enough secure communications to allow the plane to be a reasonable place to run the country. The plane is accompanied by a heavy lift aircraft that carries the helicopters and the limousines.

Presidents Bill Clinton (1993–2001) and George W. Bush (2001–09) each visited 74 different countries during their respective terms of office. All totaled, they went to 94 different countries with a combined population of 85% of the world total. As of July 2016, President Barack Obama (2009–present) has visited 55 different countries. Presidential visits of over 10,000 miles (16,093 km) are common. Round the world trips were first done by Johnson and Nixon and have been done by presidents Bush and Clinton. Trips to Europe and Asia are becoming almost routine in the 21st century.

Dwight D. Eisenhower[edit]

Dwight D. Eisenhower made one international trip while president-elect and 16 international trips during his presidency.[32] By the time he left office in 1961, Eisenhower had visited 26 countries.

In 1958, the Air Force added three Boeing 707 jets (designated SAM 970, 971, and 972), 707-153 models, into the presidential fleet. Starting in the summer of 1959 he made five major tours in one year to Europe, Southeast Asia, South America, Middle East, and Southern Asia. On his "Flight to Peace" Goodwill tour, from 3 December through 22 December 1959, the President visited 11 nations including five in Asia, flying 22,000 miles in 19 days.

An official air traffic control call sign for a United States Air Force aircraft carrying the President was established for security purposes during Eisenhower's presidency. This came about following a 1953 incident where an Eastern Airlines commercial flight (8610) had the same call sign as the flight the president was on (Air Force 8610). The airliner accidentally entered the same airspace, and after the incident, the unique presidential aircraft call sign Air Force One was introduced in 1959.

Lyndon B. Johnson made eleven international trips during his presidency.[38] He flew 523,000 miles aboard Air Force One while in office. Eschewing Europe in favor of Southeast Asia and Latin America. One of the most unusual international trips in presidential history occurred before Christmas in 1967. The President began the trip by going to the memorial service for Australian Prime Minister Harold Holt, who had disappeared in a swimming accident and was presumed drowned. The White House did not reveal in advance to the press that the President would make the first round-the-world presidential trip. The exhausting trip was 26,959 miles completed in only 112.5 hours (4.7 days). The trip crossed the equator twice, stopped in Travis Air Force Base, Calif., then Honolulu, Pago Pago, Canberra, Melbourne, Vietnam, Karachi and Rome.

Ronald Reagan[edit]

Ronald Reagan made 25 international trips during his presidency.[45] He made seven trips to continental Europe, three to Asia and one to South America. He is perhaps best remembered for his speeches at the 40th anniversary of the Normandy landings, for his impassioned speech at the Berlin Wall, his summit meetings with Mikhail Gorbachev, and riding horses with the Queen at Windsor Park.

Reagan's presidency would be transitional in international travel. During his term in office, he ordered the two special mission Boeing 747s that would become the new presidential transport to replace the aging Boeing 707s. Heavy lift aircraft could bring security, limousines, and helicopters. After that time, the president had access to inflight bedrooms and showers, boardrooms, and communication equipment and with refueling virtually unlimited range. Summit meetings would proliferate, and international travel would become more of a constant expectation of the presidency.

Barack Obama[edit]

As of August 2016, Barack Obama has made 49 international trips to 55 different countries, plus the Palestinian West Bank, during his presidency. He set the record as the most-traveled president for any first year in office: he took the most trips, visited the most countries, and spent the most days abroad. Obama made ten trips to 21 countries (four countries were visited twice) and was out of the U.S. a total of 37 days. The previous record holder, George H. W. Bush, took seven trips to 17 countries (one country was visited twice) over 28 days during the course of his first year in office. Obama was the first sitting president to visit Cambodia, Ethiopia, Kenya, and Myanmar. In December 2010, he made an unannounced trip to Afghanistan, where he visited with U.S. troops. The surprise trip came as the U.S. and NATO withdraw most of their forces from that country ahead of a year-end deadline. In March 2016, he made a historic trip to Cuba to underscore the thaw in Cuba–United States relations following a 54-year rift.

Countries visited by Barack Obama during his presidency, as of July 2016.
