Foreign Office renews Turkey attack warning

The Foreign Office has renewed its travel advice for Turkey, warning that further attacks may be imminent in Istanbul and Ankara.

The warning follows the attacks on the British Consulate General and HSBC Headquarters in Istanbul on 20 November. The Foreign Office continues to advise against all but the most essential travel to Istanbul and other major cities.

British people are urged to be vigilant in all parts of the country, especially in the vicinity of potential terrorist targets.

Full Travel Advice for Turkey is available on the FCO website or by calling 0870 606 0290

The British Consulate in Istanbul will not be able to provide the full range of services until further notice.
