Heightened Security Situation

Due to a heightened security situation, over the next two days personnel at U.S. Embassy Bujumbura will be subject to a 6:30 p.m. curfew after which they will be ordered to restrict all movement. U.S. Citizens in Burundi are similarly encouraged to stay home and to avoid travel after dark.

U.S. citizens remaining in Burundi should review the Burundi Travel Warning issued on December 13 as well as their personal security situation and seriously consider departing, taking advantage of commercial flights.
