Turkey Security Overview
There is a high threat from terrorism. Many parts of Turkey are subject to earthquakes. Demonstrations regularly take place. Avoid any travel close to the Syrian border.
Terrorist groups, including Kurdish groups & IS continue to plan and carry out attacks. Further attacks are likely and could be indiscriminate. Most terrorist attacks have taken place in the south and east of the country and in Ankara and Istanbul. Attacks are most likely to target the Turkish nationals and organizations. Attacks, however, will also target western interests and visitors from western countries, particularly in the major cities. There is a heightened risk of terrorist attack against the aviation industry in Turkey.
Generally crime levels are low, but street robbery and pick-pocketing are common in the major tourist areas of Istanbul. Avoid traveling by road at night. Accidents are common and mainly due to poor or reckless driving.
