Foreign Ministry issues travel advisory for several countries

The Romanian Foreign Affairs Ministry (MAE) has recently posted or updated its travel advisories for several countries, including Israel, Iraq, Columbia, Lebanon, Egypt, Thailand, Madagascar, Yemen, Sudan, the Republic of the Congo, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and the Ivory Coast, Mediafax informs.

The advisories that the MAE posted on its website have various levels. Thus, in what concerns Israel, the MAE warns that there are “areas or periods of time that can be dangerous.” The MAE advises Romanian citizens to be alert when traveling to Israel given the existing Middle East tensions.

In what concerns Iraq, the MAE posted an advisory on April 13, warning that the country “has confirmed risk factors.” Thus, Romanians “are advised to avoid traveling to Iraq, the security situation in this country being affected by terrorist actions.”

MAE issued advisories for the Ivory Coast and Yemen too, countries where there is a “major risk,” and Romanian citizens are “insistently advised” to immediately leave the territories of these two states. The MAE also updated its travel advisory for Egypt, warning that “there are areas or periods of time that can be dangerous.”

The same advisories were posted for Columbia, Madagascar, Thailand, Sudan and Libya.
