SUBJECT: TRAVEL ALERT - MOZAMBIQUE

1. The Department of State alerts U.S. citizens to the
potential for violence in Mozambique in association with
the October 28, 2009, general election. This Travel
Alert expires on November 10, 2009.

2. The Embassy has received specific reports of
localized civil unrest and violence in Gaza, Nampula,
Sofala and Tete provinces. Past elections in Mozambique
have featured violence in other areas of the country
throughout the campaign season, the election, and
especially in the days and weeks following the
announcement of election results.


3. U.S. citizens residing in or traveling to Mozambique
during this period are reminded to maintain a high level
of security awareness at all times and avoid political
rallies, demonstrations, and crowds of any kind. U.S.
citizens should monitor the situation via local media
sources, including TV and radio and via the internet.

4. For the latest security information, U.S. citizens
traveling abroad should regularly monitor the
Department's Internet website (http://travel.state.gov) .,
where the current Travel Warnings and Public
Announcements, including the World Wide Caution, can be
found. Up-to-date information on safety and security
can also be obtained by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll free
in the United States and Canada, or for callers outside
the United States and Canada, a regular toll-line at 1-
202-501-4444. These numbers are available from 8:00am to
8:00pm Eastern Time, Monday through Friday (except U.S.
federal holidays).

5. U.S. citizens living or traveling in Mozambique are
encouraged to register with the U.S. Embassy through the
State Department's travel registration website,
https://travelregistration.state.gov/ibrs/ui/ , so they
can obtain updated information on travel and security
within Mozambique. Americans without Internet access
may register directly with the nearest U.S. Embassy. By
registering, American citizens make it easier for the
Embassy to contact them in case of emergency. The U.S.
Embassy is located in Maputo at 193 Avenida Kenneth
Kaunda, telephone (258) 21 49 2797.

6. The after-hours telephone numbers for use in
emergencies are (258) 21 49 0723 and 21 49 2797. The
Consular Section's e-mail address is
