Military action in Iraq continues. Developments in Iraq and on the Middle East Peace Process continue to have an impact on local public opinion in the region and this might be expressed by some people, including through acts of violence against British nationals or organisations. You should follow news reports and be alert to regional developments.

There is reliable evidence that international terrorists are targeting western, including British interests in Yemen. The threat to British individuals and organisations from terrorism is high. Terrorist attacks in countries in the region could involve the use of chemical and biological materials.

We therefore advise against all travel. If you are already in Yemen you should consider leaving. British businesses and schools and British nationals resident in Yemen should review their personal security arrangements with the greatest of care. You should maintain a high level of vigilance, particularly in public places frequented by foreigners such as hotels, restaurants and shopping malls. You should take sensible precautions for your personal and vehicle safety and avoid any political gatherings and demonstrations.

British Diplomatic Missions in Yemen are closed to the public and are able to offer only limited Consular assistance to those who choose to remain. We have withdrawn all but a small complement of staff.

A U.S.-led coalition began military action in Iraq on March 19, 2003. Given the heightened tensions as a result of these hostilities, together with increased threats globally from terrorism, Canadians are advised not to travel to Yemen. Canadians should evaluate their need to remain in Yemen and if their presence is not essential should consider leaving. Information on the crisis in Iraq is available at

Canadians who choose to remain in Yemen despite this warning should not travel outside major cities and should maintain a high level of personal security awareness at all times as the security situation could deteriorate rapidly without notice. Exercise extreme caution, particularly in commercial, public and tourist areas frequented by foreigners. Canadians should monitor local developments, avoid crowds and demonstrations, as well as register and remain in regular contact with the Consulate of Canada in Sanaa, the Canadian Embassy in Riyadh (see below) or the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (call collect 613-996-8885).

Avoid leaving vehicles unattended. In the event that you have to do so, carefully inspect both the interior and exterior upon return to detect any attached devices or suspect packages nearby. Treat mail and packages from unfamiliar sources with suspicion. If you notice anything unusual, contact your sponsor or call the Yemeni police immediately. Suspects as well as witnesses to incidents may be held for lengthy periods without access to legal counsel or consular officials. If access is granted, it may be severely limited by the Yemeni authorities.

Le déclenchement des opérations militaires en Iraq peut entraîner une aggravation de la menace terroriste. Il est conseillé de surseoir à tout projet de voyage sauf raison impérative. En raison du contexte régional et à l'approche des élections législatives du 27 avril 2003, l'Ambassade de France à Sanaa recommande aux ressortissants français présents dans le pays de faire preuve de la plus grande vigilance, d'adopter une attitude de réserve et de limiter leurs déplacements.

This Travel Warning is being updated to alert U.S. citizens that the Department of State has authorized the departure of adult family members and non-emergency personnel at the U.S. Embassy in Sanaa on a voluntary basis. Due to credible reports that terrorists have planned attacks against U.S. interests in Yemen and heightened tensions and increased security concerns resulting from the current situation in the region, the security threat to all American citizens in Yemen remains high. The Department of State continues to warn U.S. citizens to defer travel to Yemen. U.S. citizens in Yemen should consider departing. This Travel Warning supersedes that issued on November 30, 2002.

On March 28, 2003, the Department of State authorized the voluntary departure of adult family members and non-emergency personnel at the U.S. Embassy in Sanaa. U.S. Embassy employees have not been allowed to bring their children to Yemen since March 18, 2002. The Department of State reaffirms its warning to United States citizens to defer travel to Yemen. The Department has received credible reports that terrorists have planned attacks against U.S. interests in Yemen. The Department anticipates that threats against Americans in Yemen will continue given the increased tensions and security concerns resulting from the current situation in the region. The U.S. Embassy in Sanaa will continue to provide consular services to American citizens. However, from time to time, the Embassy may temporarily close or suspend public services as necessary for security reasons. Emergency assistance to American citizens during non-business hours (or when public access is restricted) is available through Embassy duty personnel, who can be contacted by telephone at 967-1-303-155.

U.S. citizens who remain in or travel to Yemen despite this warning should register at the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy in Sanaa and enroll in the warden system (emergency alert network) in order to obtain updated information on travel and security in Yemen. Americans in Yemen should exercise caution and take prudent measures to maintain their security. Americans should maintain a high level of vigilance, avoid crowds and demonstrations, keep a low profile, vary times and routes for all travel, and ensure travel documents are current.

The Embassy in Sanaa advises American citizens in Yemen to exercise particular caution at locations frequented by foreigners, such as the Sanaa Trade Center, American-affiliated franchises, restaurants and shops in the Haddah area in Sanaa and in Aden and elsewhere, and at restaurants and hotels frequented by expatriates. Americans who believe they are being followed or threatened while driving in urban centers should proceed as quickly as possible to the nearest police station or major intersection and request assistance from the officers in the blue-and-white police cars stationed there.

The U.S. Embassy is located at Dhahr Himyar Zone, Sheraton Hotel District, P.O. Box 22347. The telephone number of the Consular Section is (967)(1) 303-155, extension 118, 265, or 266. The fax number is (967)(1) 303-175. The after hours emergency number is (967)(1) 303-155.
