J2 Travel advice for Turkey March 201

 J2 has advised the following Travel advice:
To all UK Military personnel in Turkey or intending to travel to Turkey for TDY or leave.

Campaigning has now started in Turkey, country wide, ahead of a national referendum on 16 April 2017; it would therefore be sensible to avoid all rallies and demonstrations and all public gatherings as a precautionary measure.

Based on previous incidents in Turkey, during past elections, EJSU J2 assess that a risk exists for UK military personnel and dependents in Turkey in the coming months.

Up to date news can be found on the FCO Travel Advice pages at Gov.uk. Any questions can be addressed to the EJSU J2 office.
