The travel security environment is largely benign. Opportunistic street crime poses the principal risk. Organised crime remains a serious problem but does not pose a significant daily risk. The risk from terrorism is negligible. Infrastructure and road safety standards are poor in rural areas, and if undertaking overland road travel ensure your vehicle is in a good condition and only drive in daylight hours. Do not self-drive unless very familiar with local conditions.

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.
