United States Consulate General Guadalajara
PLEASE CIRCULATE THIS IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT TO
AS MANY AMERICAN CITIZENS AS POSSIBLE
SUBJECT: SECURITY UPDATE Date: May 2, 2011
The U.S. Department of State alerts U.S. citizens traveling and residing
abroad to the enhanced potential for anti-American violence following
recent counter-terrorism activity in Pakistan. Given the uncertainty
and volatility of the current situation, U.S. citizens in areas where
recent events could cause anti-American violence are strongly urged to
limit their travel outside of their homes and hotels and avoid mass
gatherings and demonstrations. U.S. citizens should stay current with
media coverage of local events and be aware of their surroundings at all
times. This Travel Alert expires August 1, 2011.
U.S. Embassy operations in affected areas will continue to the extent
possible under the constraints of any evolving security situation. U.S.
government facilities worldwide remain at a heightened state of alert.
These facilities may temporarily close or periodically suspend public
services to assess their security posture. In those instances, U.S.
Embassies and Consulates will make every effort to provide emergency
services to U.S. citizens. U.S. citizens abroad are urged to monitor
the local news and maintain contact with the nearest U.S. Embassy or
Media coverage of local events may cause family and friends to become
concerned for their loved ones traveling and residing abroad. We urge
U.S. citizens to keep in regular contact with family and friends. U.S.
citizens living or traveling abroad are encouraged to enroll in the
Department of State's Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP), to
receive the latest travel updates and information and to obtain updated
information on travel and security issues. U.S. citizens without
Internet access may register directly with the appropriate U.S. Embassy
or Consulate. By enrolling, U.S. citizens make it easier for the U.S.
Embassy or Consulate to contact them in case of emergency.

can also be obtained by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll-free in the United
