Luxembourg's Ministry of Foreign and European Affairs, Defence, Cooperation and Foreign Trade has issued a travel warning for Iran, Israel and Lebanon amid escalating conflict in the Middle East.

Given the high risks of escalating conflict in the Middle East, particularly between Israel, Lebanon and Iran, the Luxembourg government has strongly advised against travelling to this region.

The Luxembourg government urged Luxembourg nationals currently in the region to exercise the utmost vigilance and to keep themselves regularly informed of the situation. “It is essential to stay away from all gatherings and to limit travel within the country, particularly to Iran, where European nationals have regularly been arrested in the past and sentenced to heavy prison terms,” the ministry warned.

The government also reiterated its travel warning from October 2023, in which it advises against all travel to Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territories.
