State Department: Serbia-Montenegro - Travel Warning, April 3, 1999
Serbia-Montenegro - Travel Warning
April 3, 1999
The Department of State warns U.S. citizens against travel to Serbia-
Montenegro and strongly urges U.S. citizens in Serbia-Montenegro to depart
the country without delay due to the military intervention by members of
the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO).
The U.S. Embassy suspended operations and all official Americans
departed Serbia-Montenegro as of March 23. There is no U.S. diplomatic
presence in Serbia-Montenegro to provide up-to-date security assessments or
consular assistance to U.S. citizens.
Given recent history in the region, the possibility exists that U.S.
citizens may be singled out in sporadic acts of violence, even though the
government of Serbia-Montenegro has offered assurances no retaliatory
actions would be taken against U.S. citizens.
This replaces the Travel Warning dated March 23, 1999 to update the
security situation in Serbia-Montenegro and to note the complete absence of
any consular services in Serbia-Montenegro.
