    May 19, 2010

    This warden message alerts U.S. citizens traveling to and residing in Thailand that the Royal Thai Government through the Center for the Resolution of the Emergency Situation (CRES) has announced that a curfew is in place from 8:00pm to 6:00am starting tonight, Wednesday, May 19. This curfew applies to the Bangkok metropolitan area and to all Thai provinces under the State of Emergency (see details below). Early morning flights may be impacted because of the curfew and the inability of crews and passengers to arrive at the airport before their scheduled flight. If you will be flying out of Bangkok in the next several days, we recommend that you confirm your flight with your airline before you leave for the airport. Reports indicate that troops have authority to shoot on sight in response to acts of inciting unrest. American citizens should maintain a low profile and refrain from nighttime outside activity until the situation improves.

    The U.S. Embassy, including visa operations, will be closed Thursday, May 20 and Friday, May 21. American Citizen Services (ACS) will be available for emergencies by phone only at 02-205-4049. For after-hours emergencies, please call 02-205-4000. The U.S. Embassy recommends against coming to the area near the U.S. Embassy.

    ACS has opened a temporary location at the Westin Grand Sukhumvit. Please see details in our recent announcement.

    U.S. citizens should avoid travel to and lodging in the area of the U.S. Embassy and the areas in and around all demonstrations, if possible. If U.S. citizens must travel to these areas, they should exercise special caution and remain vigilant with regard to their personal security. U.S. Embassy personnel who live around this area have been given the option to relocate to housing outside of the affected area until the situation is resolved. U.S. citizens are reminded to exercise caution and vigilance at all times.

    A State of Emergency has been declared in the following provinces:

    • Bangkok metropolitan area
    • Chiang Mai
    • Chiang Rai
    • Lampang
    • Nan
    • Nakhon Sawan
    • Samut Prakan
    • Chon Buri
    • Nonthaburi
    • Pathum Thani
    • Phra Nakhon Si Ayutthaya
    • Khon Kaen
    • Udon Thani
    • Chaiyaphum
    • Nakhon Ratchasima
    • Si Sa Ket
    • Kalasin
    • Mukdaharn

    U.S. citizens are reminded that even demonstrations intended to be peaceful can turn confrontational and escalate into violence with little or no warning. U.S. citizens are urged to avoid the areas that may be targeted for demonstrations and to exercise caution in their movements around Bangkok.

    Since May 15, 2010, the Department of State has advised U.S. citizens to avoid all travel to Bangkok and all non-essential travel to the rest of Thailand. You should review the Department’s most recent Travel Warning for Thailand.
