Guadalajara Warden Message


Due to recent gun battles involving automatic weapons between rival drug trafficking organizations in Yahualica, Jalisco, the U.S. Consulate General in Guadalajara has suspended all travel to the city of Yahualica by U.S. government personnel including family members. The Consulate General recommends that all U.S. citizen visitors and residents avoid unnecessary travel to the city of Yahualica.
This new restriction is in addition to previous security restrictions on official U.S. government travel within the consular district: no intercity driving at night; all official US government travel to the city of Tepic, Nayarit must be in armored vehicles. While these restrictions apply only to U.S. government personnel and their families, all resident US citizens and visitors are encouraged to take these restrictions into consideration when planning personal travel.
There are no other restrictions on U.S. government personnel travel to other locations within the consular district which consists of the states of Aguascalientes, Nayarit, Jalisco, and Colima. The Consulate General strongly encourages U.S. residents and travelers Mexico to refer to the personal safety practices contained in the Travel Warning for Mexico dated July 16. Security updates are also available on the U.S. Embassy in Mexico City’s website at http://mexico.usembassy.gov/...oSecurityUpdate.html.
For the latest security information, U.S. citizens living and traveling abroad should regularly monitor the Department’s Bureau of Consular Affairs internet web site at http://travel.state.gov, where the current Worldwide Caution, Travel Alerts, Travel Warnings, and health-information resources can be found. Up-to-date information on security can also be obtained by calling 1-888-407-4747 toll free in the United States and Canada or, for callers in other areas by calling a regular toll line at 1-202-501-4444. These numbers are available from 8:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Eastern Time, Monday through Friday (except U.S. federal holidays).
The U.S. Consulate General in Guadalajara is located at 175 Progreso Street; Col. Americana, Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico.
