The Norwegian government on Sunday warned travellers to avoid the war-torn border areas of Turkey close to Syria and Iraq.

The Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs advised against travelling to and staying in border areas that are up to 10 kilometres from the border to Syria, if it's not strictly necessary.

Concerning the Turkish border areas towards Iraq, the travelling advice was more moderate. Norwegian citizens are encouraged to be more careful when travelling to or staying closer than 10 kilometres from the border towards Iraq, according to Landsider.no.
People staying in or planning to travel to these areas, are encouraged to contact the embassy in Ankara for updated information, as well as registering their travel routes online through Reiseregistrering.no.
