    EXTREME TRAVEL RISK for Syrian Arab Republic

Risk Summary

The risks associated with travel to Syria have been dramatically heightened by the continuing civil conflict, which entails widespread attacks by armed opposition elements on government and military targets, mass-casualty bombings and large-scale military operations by government forces. Personnel face both direct and indirect risks as a consequence of the conflict, incidental as a result of military operations by both sides, and targeted due to increases in crime, kidnapping and attacks on foreign diplomatic interests.

The potential exists for the status of international border crossings to change with little notice, while significant limitations – and airport security concerns – affect the provision of commercial air options. The authorities periodically restrict the availability of communications options, including mobile phone and the internet, and essential services with no notice.

This information is intended as a summary of the travel security environment; however, the risks can change at short notice during a crisis or evolving situation. Please check our travel security alerts to ensure you are informed of the most recent developments.
