Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Holiday Security Reminder

The U.S. Embassy encourages U.S. citizens to maintain a high level of vigilance and be aware of local events to bolster their personal security during the holiday season.

The U.S. Embassy advises all U.S. citizens to be particularly vigilant around churches, mosques, and other places of worship; locations where large crowds may gather; government facilities; and areas frequented by expatriates and foreign travelers during the upcoming holidays. U.S. citizens are also reminded to be vigilant in their homes and when traveling to guard against heightened robbery and home invasions during this time period.

Review your personal security plans; remain aware of your surroundings; and monitor local news stations for updates. Maintain a high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to enhance your personal security.
