Do not travel
There’s an ongoing high threat of terrorism, with attacks expected to continue. Don't travel to Somalia. If you're in the country, leave as soon as possible. If you decide to stay, get professional security advice. The electoral process in the lead up to the forthcoming Presidential election is likely to correspond with a spike in violence. We advise: Do not travelΒ to Somalia due to armed conflict, the ongoing very high threat of terrorist attack and kidnapping, and dangerous levels of violent crime.
