U.S. Citizen Travel Warning for the weekend
September 21, 2012
The U.S. Consulate General Hyderabad recommends that all U.S. citizens in Hyderabad refrain from travelling to the U.S. Consulate in Begumpet, and also to avoid the Old City this weekend. There is a possibility of demonstrations in these areas. As always, the duty officer will be available in case of emergencies at +91 (40) 4033-8300.
U.S. citizens living or traveling abroad are encouraged to enroll with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate through the State Department’s travel website so that they can obtain updated information on travel and security. U.S. citizens without Internet access may enroll directly with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate. By enrolling, U.S. citizens make it easier for the Embassy or Consulate to contact them in case of emergency. For additional information, please refer to “A Safe Trip Abroad”.
For the latest security information, U.S. citizens traveling abroad should regularly monitor the Department's Internet website where the Worldwide Caution and current Travel Warnings and Travel Alerts can be found.
