Major travel warnings for Haiti and Turkey by U.S.

Published on : Monday, February 18, 2019

Over the past few days, U.S. has issued major travel warnings for Turkey and Haiti. On Feb. 14, the U.S. Travel Department of State, Bureau of Consular Affairs changed the Turkey’s travel warning to a ‘Level 3: Reconsider Travel’ advisory. This was done keeping in mind the increased risk of terrorism and arbitrary detentions. Areas near the Syrian and Iraq borders are considered the most dangerous, labeling them under a ‘Level 4: Do Not Travel’ warning. The U.S. Travel Department of State indicates that the terrorist groups in these areas are plotting to attack the country.

 

 

 

The advisory reads as: “Security forces have detained tens of thousands of individuals, including U.S. citizens, for alleged affiliations with terrorist organizations based on scant or secret evidence and grounds that appear to be politically motivated. U.S. citizens have also been subject to travel bans that prevent them from departing Turkey. Participation in demonstrations not explicitly approved by the Government of Turkey, as well as criticism of the government, including on social media, can result in arrest.”

 

 

 

On February 14, the U.S. issued a “Level 4: Do Not Travel” warning to the Caribbean nation of Haiti. The travel warning is due to nine-straight days of violent protests and civil unrest in Haiti’s capital and other cities against President Jovenel Moise. Citizens are expressing anger over corruption and poor administration by President Moise and the government.
