Yemen Crisis

Emergency Message for U.S. Citizens - Updated Departure Options- April 9, 2015

Due to the security situation, the State Department had to evacuate our Embassy in Yemen on February 11.  We don’t have any American consular officers in Yemen and so we are not able to assist U.S. citizens to leave the country at this time.  There are no plans for a U.S. government-sponsored evacuation of U.S. citizens right now.  We encourage you to keep monitoring the news, watch for the airport to re-open and flights to resume, and seek any available departure options you can find, via air, land, or sea.  In the meantime, please do whatever you think best to keep yourself safe.

You can find more information on our Yemen Crisis webpage, in our Travel Warning for Yemen, and in our Country Specific Information for Yemen.  If we have any updates, we will post the information on these websites.  If you have any further questions, please email
