The Travel Advice maps provide no more than a broad indication of the country's geographical location. They are not designed to represent detail, and they should not be considered an authority on the delimitation of boundaries or the spelling of place names.


You should be aware of the global risk of indiscriminate attacks (that could take place at anytime, anywhere).

When overseas, you should always maintain at least the same level of vigilance as you would in the UK and take sensible precautions. If you see or hear anything suspicious, you should inform the appropriate authorities or security forces.

See Risk of Terrorism.
