US – There have been violent attacks in Turkey, and the possibility of terrorist attacks against U.S. citizens and interests, from both transnational and indigenous groups, remains high.
UK – The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to within 10 km of the border with Syria.
The FCO advise against all but essential travel to:
the remaining areas of Sirnak, Mardin, Sanliurfa, Gaziantep, Kilis and Hatay provinces
Siirt, Tunceli and Hakkari provinces.
-Vi advarer mot å reise til Tyrkia om du absolutt ikke er nødt. Forhøyet terrorfare.
UK – The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) advise against all travel to:
- the Chaambi Mountain National Park area
- the Tunisia-Algeria border crossing points at Ghardimaou, Hazoua and Sakiet Sidi Youssef
- the militarized zone south of, but not including, the towns of El Borma and Dhehiba
- within 5km of the Libya border area from north of Dhehiba up to but not including the Ras Ajdir border crossing
The FCO advise against all but essential travel to the rest of Tunisia.
The U.S. Embassy recommends that U.S. citizens in Tunisia maintain a high level of vigilance, as terrorism remains a significant concern.
U.S. citizens should exercise caution when frequenting public venues that are visited by large numbers of foreigners, such as hotels, shopping centers, tourist sites and restaurants. Two recent attacks targeted foreign tourists: March 18, 2015, at the Bardo Museum in Tunis; and June 26, 2015 near Sousse at the Riu Imperial Marhaba and Riu Bellevue Park hotels. The Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) claimed responsibility for both attacks. U.S. citizens should also be alert to the possibility of kidnapping.
Terrorist organizations have also targeted Tunisian security forces and government installations. The Tunisian government officially designated the group Ansar As-Sharia in Tunisia (AAS-T), a group with known anti-U.S. and anti-Western sentiments, as a terrorist organization on August 27, 2013. The Tunisian government continues security force operations against AAS-T, ISIL and al Qaida in the Islamic Maghreb (AQIM). The Tunisian President declared a state of emergency throughout the country on July 4, 2015, giving the Tunisian government greater powers to control public order.
