Nepal Public Announcement

Issued by US Department of State

Jan 25, 2002

The Department of State advises Americans residing in or contemplating travel to Nepal to exercise caution. The state of emergency declared by the Government of Nepal in response to attacks on security forces and government facilities continues. While the scale of armed clashes has declined, sporadic violent encounters between the insurgents and security forces are reported in numerous portions of the country, including areas that had not typically seen much Maoist activity. The U.S. Embassy has significantly limited travel by official American personnel outside the Kathmandu Valley. The Department advises American citizens planning travel outside the Kathmandu Valley to contact the U.S. Embassy in Nepal to obtain updated information on travel and security.

Americans should closely monitor the Department's web site at http://travel.state.gov. For further information on travel to Nepal, please consult the Department of State's latest Consular Information Sheet on Nepal at http://travel.state.gov/nepal.html and the American Embassy in Nepal's home page at http://www.south-asia.com/USA/. Americans living in or visiting Nepal are encouraged to register at the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Nepal. The U.S. Embassy is located at Pani Pokhari in Kathmandu, telephone (977) (1) 411179; fax (977) (1) 419963. U.S. citizens may also register by e-mail by accessing the Embassy's home page.
