EUCOM Implements Travel Restrictions to Turkey

U.S. European Command has now restricted travel to Turkey for all Defense Department personnel: all military and civilian workers, and family members, including those with dual citizenship, are prohibited from traveling to Turkey.

Unofficial and official travel — including ship-to-shore travel from cruises in Turkey — require general officer approval.

Personnel in Turkey should avoid public protests, demonstrations, rallies or other large gatherings to the greatest extent possible. They should remain alert to suspicious behavior and be aware of their surroundings at all times.
