U.S. State Department Travel Warning for Cameroon

“This Travel Warning is being issued to advise American citizens of the unstable security situation in Cameroon. On February 28, the Department of State authorized the departure from Cameroon of eligible family members of American employees of the U.S. Embassy throughout Cameroon. American citizens in Cameroon should exercise extreme caution and try to depart the country if their situation permits. American citizens outside of Cameroon should defer non-essential travel until the security situation stabilizes and critical services are restored. International flights into Douala and Yaounde continue, but may be diverted or cancelled on short notice. U.S. citizens should monitor the U.S. Embassy Yaounde website at Home - Yaounde, Cameroon and media sources for the latest information. This Travel Warning replaces the Travel Alert for Cameroon of February 27, 2008.”
