"The first decree issued by the government of Turkey under the state of emergency increases legal detention periods without charge from a maximum of four days to a maximum of 30 days," the Embassy stated on Monday. "If you are arrested or detained, ask police or prison officials to notify the US Embassy or Consulate immediately."
The Turkish government imposed a three-month state of emergency following a failed military coup in the country on July 15.
Anyone who cannot provide identity documents when requested by police is subject to a fine or imprisonment, the Embassy explained and advised US citizens to carry identity documents and cooperate with Turkish authorities.
The state of emergency also imposes restrictions on public gatherings. The Embassy encouraged US citizens to be aware of local events and large demonstrations or rallies.
