New Measures to Prevent Terrorists from Infiltrating Yemen [Archives:2001/49/Front Page]

December 3 2001

The Yemeni authorities have approved new measures which were issued last week with regard to stopping issuing visas or allowing Arab citizens and students to enter Yemen, including those from Egypt, Sudan, Algeria, Libya and Tunisia.
Likewise, the same procedures have applied to other countries with the exception of those countries which have stopped issuing visas for only three months.
A security source told the 26 September weekly newspaper on Thursday 29 that new measures have been implemented in regards to issuing visas for both Arab and foreigners who study at Yemeni universities.
They are also subjected to medical checkups and accurate investigations to prevent suspected terrorists from infiltrating Yemeni territories.
