What else to know about traveling to Somalia

Currently, traveling to Somalia is not advised for foreigners, as the country’s infrastructure and people are still recovering from 25 years of civil war. Civil unrest, illegal roadblocks, major terrorist attacks, and violent crime are common. Additionally, severe drought in Somalia is causing the risk of food insecurity.

Services that provide emergency services, medical facilities, and public transportation are unreliable.

Despite these problems, the rich Somali culture and Somali citizens live on trying to establish peace. The United Nations are active in the area to create peace within the country.
