Planning for a Trip to Yemen

AIYS members planning a trip to Yemen should take into account how existing security considerations -- including State Department consular information sheets and travel warnings -- may affect their ability to do their work, and all fellows are strongly encouraged to consult the State Department announcements concerning travel in the Middle East before departure from the U.S. Other sources of information include British Foreign Office warnings, international on-line news-services and the index to articles provided by the Yemen Daily Times, the on-line edition of the weekly Yemen Times and Yemen Observer, and the website Yemen Gateway, which gives background information on ongoing stories. And while AIYS accepts no responsibility for decisions made by individuals, the AIYS Resident Director in Sana'a will upon request provide current information for those planning a research trip to Yemen. AIYS fellows who plan to travel to Yemen are also reminded of the conditions of the contingency planning document distributed in the award package and also posted on this site. All AIYS fellows are required to register with the U.S. embassy upon arrival in Yemen; AIYS strongly recommends that all its members do so. Note that at present AIYS fellows funded from ECA/CAORC program grants may not travel to Yemen using fellowship funds until the State Department has lifted its ban on such travel.
