Security Alert – U.S. Embassy New Delhi

Location: India

Event: U.S. Citizens should exercise caution in light of continued protests and demonstrations which are continuing in many parts of India. While demonstrations in the National Capital Region have been relatively peaceful over the past few days, U.S. citizens should continue to monitor local media for news concerning demonstrations and their locations, and avoid those areas. Embassy personnel should exercise caution if traveling to Uttar Pradesh, where violent demonstrations continue. Agra, including areas around the Taj Mahal, is an exception and has been calm so far.

U.S. citizens traveling abroad should regularly monitor the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs website, where the current Worldwide Caution, Travel Warnings, Travel Alerts, and Country Specific Information can be found. The U.S. embassy also encourages U.S. citizens to review the “Traveler’s Checklist,”which includes valuable security information for those living and traveling abroad.

Actions to Take:

  • Avoid areas with demonstrations and civil disturbances.
  • Keep a low profile.
  • Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Monitor local media for updates.
  • Review your personal security plans.
  • Notify friends and family of your safety.
  • Follow the instructions of local authorities.
