Given coalition action in Syria and Iraq and the threat to countries involved, we have decided today to update our travel advice to reflect this.

The government is adding the following information and advice to all of its travel advice pages:

There is considered to be a heightened threat of terrorist attack globally against UK interests and British nationals from groups or individuals motivated by the conflict in Iraq and Syria. You should be vigilant at this time.

This change is being made to travel advice globally in response to the generalised threat. The government will continue to reflect any specific credible threats in travel advice in the usual way.”

The Foreign Office advises against all travel to Syria and the northern half of Iraq.

It warns tourists to Turkey to avoid any travel to within 10 km of the Syrian border, and all but essential travel to the southern provinces. There is a risk of “indiscriminate” attacks in places visited by tourists in the rest of the country.

Earlier this month two police officers were killed in a suspected terror attack in Bingol in the country’s south east.

The FCO also advises against travel to much of Egypt beyond the Nile valley.
