The U.S. Embassy in Tbilisi informs U.S. citizens residing in or traveling through Europe that travel may be delayed or disrupted across the region, including via land borders. We urge U.S. citizen travelers to carry a valid passport and visa or residency card, if applicable, at all times. Please monitor local media reports for up-to-date information regarding border controls in the country you are visiting and consult your travel company regarding disrupted travel. For questions regarding your immigration status in any European country, please contact the embassy or consulate of the country you are transiting or visiting.
