In the lead up to the holiday season, the U.S. Embassy in Beijing and the Consulates General throughout China remind U.S. citizens in China to remain vigilant to the continuing threat of terrorist actions and violence against U.S. citizens and interests around the world.
The Department of State recently issued an updated Travel Alert for Europe advising U.S. citizens to exercise caution during festivals, events, and outdoor markets. The Department also has in effect a worldwide caution, alerting U.S. citizens to the continuing threat of terrorist actions and violence against U.S. citizens and interests throughout the world.
