Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Ongoing Demonstrations

U.S. citizens are reminded to continue to avoid all protests, demonstrations, and large gatherings as even peaceful demonstrations can turn confrontational. While recent demonstrations have mainly been limited to specific industrial areas, demonstrations can occur elsewhere with little or no prior notice. U.S. citizens should be alert and aware of their surroundings and pay attention to local news media reports for up-to-date information.

For additional guidance, including how to enroll in the State Department’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), please refer to the U.S. Consulate General’s May 14 Security Message.
