    MEDIUM TRAVEL RISK for Burundi
    HIGH TRAVEL RISK for Bubanza and Cibitoke provinces; Bujumbura Rural province

Risk Summary

The main travel risk is from petty crime, though armed robberies are increasing. In Bujumbura, crime levels are higher in the city's poor districts, but no areas are immune. The presence in Bujumbura Rural province, as well as in Cibitoke and Bubanza provinces, of former National Liberation Forces (FNL) rebels involved in criminal activities, contributes to a credible risk of violent attack or kidnapping in these areas, even if foreigners are not specifically targeted. Politically motivated violence can pose incidental risks, including in Bujumbura. Areas bordering eastern Congo (DRC) are dangerous due to the risks posed by cross-border rebel activity.

This information is intended as a summary of the travel security environment; however, the risks can change at short notice during a crisis or evolving situation. Please check our travel security alerts to ensure you are informed of the most recent developments.
