The U.S. Department of State
The U.S. Department of State & Bureau of Consular Affairs makes it their business to know what is going on in the world at all times. They categorize travel information as either warnings or alerts.
The difference is:
A Travel Warning–consider very carefully whether you should go to a country at all. (Serious)
A Travel Alert–events you should know about when planning travel to a country. (Less Serious)
You can also check out their interactive map and enter any country to find any travel alerts or warnings.
