The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has updated its travel advice to advise against all travel to Yemen and to strongly urge British nationals to leave.
The situation in Yemen remains volatile with continuing unrest and violent clashes. There is a high threat from terrorism throughout Yemen.
Due to increased security concerns, all staff in the British Embassy have been temporarily withdrawn and the Embassy will remain closed until staff are able to return.
The level of consular assistance available to British nationals is limited. If you need urgent consular assistance call either +967 1308 114 to be redirected to the FCO in London or +44 (0) 20 7008 1500.
