Security Message for U.S. Citizens: Worldwide Caution – March 3, 2016
Please be advised that the Department of State is updating the Worldwide Caution with information on the continuing threat of terrorist actions and violence against U.S. citizens and interests throughout the world. Current information suggests that ISIL, al-Qa’ida, Boko Haram, al-Shabaab, and other terrorist groups continue to plan terrorist attacks in multiple regions. Recent terrorist attacks, whether by those affiliated with terrorist entities, copycats, or individual perpetrators, serve as a reminder that U.S. citizens need to maintain a high level of vigilance and take appropriate steps to increase their security awareness. The full text of the Worldwide Caution is available at https://travel.state.gov/content/passports/en/alertswarnings/worldwide-caution.html. This replaces the Worldwide Caution dated July 29, 2015.
