    U.S. Department of State urges U.S. citizens not to travel to Armenia and Karabakh

    U.S. Department of State advises U.S. citizens to reconsider travel to Armenia due to COVID-19.

    "The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Level 3 Travel Health Notice for Armenia due to COVID-19, indicating a high level of COVID-19 in the country... Before planning any international travel, please review the CDC’s specific recommendations for fully vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers," the statement runs.

    The U.S. Department of state also urges the U.S. citizens not to travel to  Karabakh "due to armed conflict."

    "Casualties continue to occur in the Nagorno-Karabakh conflict. Intermittent gunfire and occasional use of artillery systems, including land mines and mortars, result in deaths and injuries each year. Avoid roads near the ‘line of contact’ and roads near the international border between Armenia and Azerbaijan. The U.S. government is unable to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in Nagorno-Karabakh as U.S. government employees are restricted from traveling there," the statement reads.
