The U.S. State Department on Saturday said U.S. citizens should reconsider traveling to Turkey after a failed coup left dozens dead in Ankara, Istanbul and other parts of the country. The U.S. Embassy in Ankara said U.S. citizens in Turkey should only leave their residences for essential errands or business.
Background: A faction of the Turkish military attempted a coup against President Recep Tayyip Erdoğan’s government late Friday. The attempt was unsuccessful and thousands of alleged conspirators were arrested over the weekend. The embassy said the “situation in Turkey remains fluid” and advised U.S. citizens to leave their residence or hotel only for essential business.
BAL Analysis: Companies that have not already done so should be sure they can account for all employees in Turkey. Employers in need of urgent immigration services or who plan on moving personnel into or out of Turkey at this time should contact their BAL attorney.
