    HIGH TRAVEL RISK for Bangui

Risk Summary

The security environment in the capital Bangui has improved modestly since late January 2014, due to the disarmament of local fighters by international peacekeeping troops and the departure of the bulk of Séléka rebels from the city. However, the security environment in the city remains volatile; Christian 'anti-balaka' militias maintain a strong presence in Bangui, and localised incidents of communal and religious violence are frequent. There is no government control outside Bangui and consequently there is a significant risk of falling victim to crime and rebel activity. Armed groups operate in rural areas and highway robbery is common, notably in the north and west. There is no significant terrorism threat.

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