Peru Public Announcement

Issued by US Department of State

May 05, 2003

This Public Announcement is being issued to alert U.S. citizens to the continued potential for terrorist activity by Sendero Luminoso and other groups in Peru, in the weeks leading up to and following May 17, an important anniversary for these groups. This Public Announcement expires on July 24, 2003.

U.S.-citizen visitors and residents in Peru should exercise caution. There are indications that terrorist organizations are continuing to plan actions directed against U.S. citizens and U.S. interests in Peru. U.S. citizens are advised to be vigilant and avoid crowds and public areas, particularly those areas where Americans and other foreigners are known to congregate or visit. If such facilities cannot be avoided, U.S. citizens should increase their security awareness at such locations.

Peruvian authorities are providing increased security at the U.S. Embassy and U.S.-affiliated facilities. The U.S. Embassy remains open to the public.

Information on travel and security in Peru may be obtained from the Department of State by calling 1-888-407-4747 within the United States; from overseas, call 1-317-472-2328. The U.S. Embassy in Lima can be contacted by phone at (511) 434-3000, and the Consular Agent in Cuzco at (511) 84-9-62-1369. Travelers may also consult the Department of State's Consular Information Sheet for Peru and the Worldwide Caution Public Announcement found on the Internet at http://travel.state.gov.
