πŸ›‘οΈ Travel safety

Do not travel

COVID-19 is confirmed as being in Somalia, including Somaliland. The Somali authorities at national and local level have put in place a range of measures to control the spread of COVID-19. In Mogadishu these include a night-time curfew, as well as measures relating to public gatherings, schools and mosques. Local authorities in Somaliland have announced additional measures. All international and domestic passenger flights are banned until further notice. A reduced flight service still operates between Hargeisa and Addis Ababa for those wishing to leave Somaliland. There's an ongoing high threat of terrorism with attacks expected to continue. If you wish to leave Somalia, leave now if it is safe to do so. We haven't changed our level of advice: Do not travelΒ to Somalia due to the high risk of terrorist attack, kidnapping, armed conflict and violent crime.
