Violent Crime
There are occasional incidents of assault and other violent crime in Timor-Leste.  Foreigners may be targeted for robbery because of their perceived wealth.  Sexual harassment of foreign women is common. Women should avoid visiting isolated areas alone or taking public transport (including taxis) alone, especially at night.

Violent Crime
Violent crime is an issue throughout the Republic of the Congo, particularly in rural areas, although the levels of crime in the capital Brazzaville and Pointe Noire are low compared to other cities in the region.  We advise against walking alone or in isolated areas and against travelling at night.

New Zealanders should be aware that crime may be motivated by opportunity or the perceived affluence of the victim. It is advisable to avoid wearing or displaying items that appear valuable, such as mobile devices and jewellery.

There is a general threat of terrorism in Morocco.  While Morocco has not suffered a terrorist attack since 2011, a number of suspected terrorists have been arrested in recent years and the possibility of future attacks, particularly in areas frequented by foreigners, cannot be discounted.

Political Tension/Civil unrest
On 22 May 2014, the Thai military took control of the government in a coup and imposed martial law nationwide.  On 1 April 2015, martial law was lifted across most of Thailand but replaced by other special measures which continue to allow the military expanded powers to enforce order.

Civil unrest
Demonstrations in relation to economic and political developments occur frequently in Greece, often with little warning. In light of ongoing austerity measures and economic conditions in Greece, further demonstrations are possible. Although tourists have not been targeted in violence surrounding demonstrations, the potential remains for them to be caught up in violence directed at others.
