 Event: U.S. citizens are urged to be cautious and vigilant when living and traveling abroad given the potential threat of terrorist attacks and extremist action against U.S. citizens and interests.

Locations where crowds gather such as hotels, restaurants, nightclubs, shopping malls, foreign diplomatic missions, religious institutions, government offices, airports, and public transportation or transportation hubs are especially vulnerable.

  • Have a contingency plan for emergencies and review the Traveler’s Checklist.
  • Maintain a low profile.
  • Report any suspicious activities or security incidents to local police.
  • Follow the instructions of local authorities especially in an emergency.
  • Avoid crowded places and demonstrations.
