The American Embassy in Niamey has received reports of anti-American threats and sentiments in Maradi and Niamey linked to possible U.S. action in response to the attacks of September 11. As a result, the Embassy is reviewing all travel by its personnel outside the capital, on a case-by-case basis. We encourage all Americans in Niger to exercise similar caution, maintain heightened security awareness, and be vigilant to any unusual activity in their daily surroundings.
American citizens who plan to travel to Niger are reminded to register with the U.S. Embassy in Niamey and to obtain updated information on travel in Niger. The U.S. Embassy is located at Avenue des Ambassades; the mailing address is B.P. 11201 Niamey, Niger; telephone: (227) 72-26-61/2/3/4; fax: (227) 73-31-67; e-mail: [email protected]
