There is heightened tension in the Middle East that may result in security risks to U.S. citizens abroad.
Out of an abundance of caution, the Embassy is enhancing its security posture. The Embassy will remain open during regular business hours for visa and American Citizen Services appointments, including passport issuance.
The Embassy will continue to review the security situation and will provide additional information as needed.
Actions to Take:
- Keep a low profile.
- Be aware of your surroundings.
- Stay alert in locations frequented by tourists
- Review your personal security plans.
- Have travel documents up to date and easily accessible.
