The Department of State reports that the government of Eritrea continues to require all foreign nationals to apply for permission to travel outside of Asmara. Also, an increased number of Eritrean-US dual citizens have been arrested without apparent cause.

Since UN sanctions were imposed on Eritrea in December 2009, there is anti-US sentiment among some Eritrean nationals; demonstrations against the US have occurred. 

Travel near the Eritrean-Ethiopian border and to the southern Red Sea region, including the port of Assab, should be avoided. There are large numbers of Eritrean and Ethiopian troops along the Eritrean-Ethiopian border and acute political tensions between the two countries.
