Advice

πŸ›‘οΈ Travel safety

Exercise a high degree of caution
Protests and rioting are taking place in Dakar. Remain vigilant and avoid large gatherings and demonstrations (see 'Safety'). COVID-19 restrictions and public health measures remain in place in Senegal, including wearing face masks in public spaces. The Australian High Commission in Accra currently has very limited capacity to provide consular assistance in Senegal. We now advise: Exercise a high degree of caution in Senegal overall due to the threat of criminal activity and civil unrest.
