Mali Travel Warning

Issued by US Department of State

Dec 07, 2015

The Department of State continues to warn U.S. citizens of the risks of travel to Mali. This Travel Warning also reminds U.S. citizens that on December 1 the Department of State authorized the voluntary departure of eligible family members and non-emergency personnel from the U.S. Embassy in Bamako. U.S. citizens currently in Mali are encouraged to review their personal safety and security plans to determine whether they should depart. U.S. citizens are responsible for making their own travel arrangements. From time to time, the U.S. Embassy may limit or suspend routine consular services due to security and staffing considerations. Please check the U.S. Embassy website for current information on available services. Citizens who decide to remain in Mali despite this travel warning should maintain situational awareness at all times and register their presence within Mali with the Embassy by enrolling in STEP. This replaces the Travel Warning issued on December 1, 2015.

The security environment in Mali remains fluid and the potential for attacks throughout the country, including in Bamako, remains. On November 20, an unknown number of heavily armed assailants stormed the Radisson Blu Hotel in Bamako using gunfire and grenades. One U.S. citizen and 18 civilians from Mali, Belgium, China, Israel, Russia, and Senegal were murdered in the attack. Violent extremist and militant elements, including al- Qaeda in the Lands of Islamic Maghreb (AQIM), Ansar al-Dine, the Movement for Oneness and Jihad (MUJAO), and al-Murabitun have claimed responsibility for the attack on the Radisson Blu.

U.S. citizens who choose to remain in Mali should remain vigilant, maintain awareness of their surroundings, and avoid public gatherings and locations frequented by foreigners, such as markets, restaurants, bars, and hotels. Follow the advice of local authorities and stay abreast of the situation through media outlets. Vary your daily routine, and travel only on main roads to the extent this is possible.

For further information:

See the State Department's Travel Website for the Worldwide Caution, Travel Warnings, Travel Alerts, and Country Specific Information for Mali.

Enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive security messages and make it easier to locate you in an emergency.
