Traveling to the 2020 Youth Olympics in Lausanne, Switzerland January 9 – 22, 2020. The Department of State would like to highlight some key tips for U.S. citizens traveling to the Games:
Major events, such as the Youth Olympic Games, are a prime opportunity for criminal elements to target tourists. Be alert to the possibility of mugging, pick pocketing, theft, and harassment, and avoid going out alone at night and carrying large amounts of money or other valuables.
