State Department: Macedonia - Caution, June 12, 1992
Macedonia - Caution
The Department of State advises travelers to Macedonia that
political and economic changes in the region make travel there
difficult and potentially dangerous. Travelers entering or leaving
Macedonia by its land border with Greece may experience delays.
Delays may also be experienced at the Serbian-Macedonian border,
especially by Americans of ethnic Albanian descent. Although
private and business travelers continue to visit Macedonia without
incident, a deteriorating economic situation has led to an increase
in crime. Shortages of food and fuel may occur.
