Turkey Travel Warning

exclamation The U.S. State Department has released a warning issued by the U.S. Embassy in Turkey to all U.S. citizens currently in Turkey, or planning to travel there. The Security Message states:

"U.S. citizens traveling or residing in Turkey should be alert to the potential for violence, avoid those areas where disturbances have occurred, and avoid demonstrations and large gatherings. Even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and possibly escalate into violence. U.S. citizens are therefore urged to avoid the areas of demonstrations if possible, and to exercise caution if in the vicinity of any demonstrations."

Ankara, Turkey

NELC strongly discourages travel to Turkey and students wishing to travel do so at their own risk. Please review the State Department's website for the most current information on the situation in Turkey.
