Syria, April 25, 2011

U.S. citizens who remain in Syria are advised to limit nonessential travel within the country. U.S. citizens not in Syria should postpone all travel to Syria at this time. The Department of State has ordered all eligible family members of U.S. government employees as well as certain non-emergency personnel to leave Syria. Embassy operations will continue to the best possible extent.
