Saudi Arabia Travel Warning

Issued by US Department of State

Aug 14, 2003

This Travel Warning is being updated to alert Americans to increased security concerns in Saudi Arabia. This Travel Warning supersedes that of July 24, 2003.

The Department of State warns U.S. citizens to defer non-essential travel to Saudi Arabia. Americans are reminded of the potential for further terrorist actions against U.S. citizens abroad, including in the Persian Gulf region.

The U.S. Government has received indications of terrorist threats aimed at American and Western interests, including the targeting of transportation and civil aviation. There is credible information that terrorists have targeted Western aviation interests in Saudi Arabia. American citizens in Saudi Arabia should remain vigilant, particularly in public places such as residential areas, clubs, restaurants, places of worship, hotels, schools, airports, outdoor recreation events, resorts and beaches, etc.

U.S. citizens who travel to, or remain in, Saudi Arabia despite this Travel Warning should register at the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Riyadh or at the Consulates in Jeddah and Dhahran and enroll in the warden system (emergency alert network) in order to obtain updated information on travel and security in Saudi Arabia.

As the Department continues to develop information on any potential security threats to U.S. citizens overseas, it shares credible threat information through its Consular Information Program documents available on the Internet at http://travel.state.gov. U.S. travelers can also get up-to-date information on security conditions by calling 1-888-407-4747 in the U.S. or Canada or on a regular toll line at 1-317-472-2328.

U.S. citizens should also consult the Department of State's Consular Information Sheet for Saudi Arabia , the Worldwide Caution Public Announcement , and Middle East and North Africa Public Announcement at http://travel.state.gov.
