Event: Heightened Middle East Tensions


Heightened tension in the Middle East may result in security risks to U.S. citizens abroad. The Embassy will continue to review the security situation and will provide additional information as appropriate. This is a good time to review personal security procedures.

Actions to Take:

Keep a low profile.

Be aware of your surroundings.

Stay alert in locations frequented by tourists, or where crowds gather.

Review your personal security plans.

Have travel documents up to date and easily accessible.
