Messages for U.S. Citizens

From time to time, the Department of State receives unconfirmed reports that prompt concern about the safety and security of U.S. Government personnel and private U.S. citizens abroad. In addition, the possibility remains that terrorists and other groups or individuals may take actions against Americans and American interests.  In the past, these groups and individuals have not distinguished between U.S. government and civilian targets.  Security continues to be a prime concern at U.S. government facilities worldwide; likewise, U.S. citizens traveling or residing abroad are urged to review their own personal security practices, to be attentive to their surroundings, and to exercise caution.

This page contains information sent via e-mail from the American Citizen Services Unit of the Consular Section to U.S. citizens enrolled with the U.S. Embassy in Nouakchott.  If you are an U.S. citizen and wish to receive these messages, please enroll in the Smart Travelers Enrollment Program (STEP).
