Travel Advisories and Restrictions

Dept of State Worldwide Travel Alert:

Travel Alert

U.S. citizens should exercise vigilance when in public places or using transportation. Be aware of immediate surroundings and avoid large crowds or crowed places. Exercise particular caution during the holiday season and at holiday festivals or events. U.S. citizens should monitor media and local information sources and factor updated information into personal travel plans and activities. Persons with specific safety concerns should contact local law enforcement authorities who are responsible for the safety and security of all visitors to their host country. U.S. citizens should: 

  • Follow the instructions of local authorities. Monitor media and local information sources and factor updated information into personal travel plans and activities. 
  • Be prepared for additional security screening and unexpected disruptions. 
  • Stay in touch with your family members and ensure they know how to reach you in the event of an emergency. 
  • Register in our Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP).

Foreign governments have taken action to guard against terrorist attacks, and some have made official declarations regarding heightened threat conditions. Authorities continue to conduct raids and disrupt terror plots. We continue to work closely with our allies on the threat from international terrorism. Information is routinely shared between the United States and our key partners in order to disrupt terrorist plotting, identify and take action against potential operatives, and strengthen our defenses against potential threats.

Terrorism Advisory System

DHS Terrorism Advisory:
  • 15 June 2016 Bulletin: In December, we described a new phase in the global threat environment, which has implications on the homeland. This basic assessment has not changed. In this environment, we are particularly concerned about homegrown violent extremists who could strike with little or no notice. The tragic events of Orlando several days ago reinforce this. Accordingly, increased public vigilance and awareness continue to be of utmost importance. This bulletin has a five-month duration and will expire just before the holiday season. We will reassess the threats of terrorism at that time. OPEN


Travel Warnings

Travel Warnings:
  • Nigeria Travel Warning: The Department of State warns U.S. Citizens of the risks of travel to Nigeria and recommends that U.S. Citizens avoid all travel to Adamawa, Borno, and Yobe States because the security situation in Northeast Nigeria remains fluid and unpredictable. OPEN
  • Turkey Travel Warning: The U.S. Department of State warns U.S. Citizens against travel to Southeastern Turkey due to an increased threat of Terrorist Attacks from both International and Indigenous Terror Groups. OPEN
