There are currently very strict warnings for U.S. citizens considering travel to Yemen because of an ongoing conflict that began in 2015. There are terrorist activities currently occurring in the nation that result in a high threat level to visitors, especially westerners, to Yemen at this time. This travel warning was updated in October 2016 by the U.S. State Department to re-emphasize the possibility of U.S. citizens being detained and held by armed groups in Sanaa, and this threat remains unchanged at this time. Travel by U.S. citizens should be delayed if at all possible to a later date to Yemen and anyone considering travel to the country should review the current travel alerts on the State Department website.
The Republic of Yemen is a small country in Western Asia bordered by Saudi Arabia to the north, Oman to the east, the Gulf of Aden to the south and the Red Sea to the west. Yemen has eight airports throughout the country that offer passenger service on commercial airlines, including four that are used for international travel. The airports include:
The Republic of Yemen is currently under a military embargo led by Saudi Arabia that began in 2015. All airports are currently closed for commercial traffic. Once the embargo and travel restrictions have been lifted, flights should be available regionally and internationally via the number of airports that become operational. Once the ban is lifted, travel warnings may still persist and travelers from any country, including the U.S., should research the safety alerts put forth by the State Department and other agencies.
