Risk Summary

Most business travel is to southern and eastern areas, away from regions where banditry and militant activity threaten foreign personnel. Conflict between the foreign-backed military and Islamist militants in the northern regions of Gao, Kidal and Timbuktu, as well as in the central Mopti region, makes travel to these areas inadvisable. There is also a credible risk of kidnapping by militants in in northern parts of Kayes region. Crime levels are highest in the capital Bamako, though they remain low by Western standards. Military intervention in politics is possible at times of crisis.

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 alerts to ensure you are informed of the most recent developments.
