Risk Summary

Travellers should take precautions against petty crime and highway banditry, especially when travelling by road in western and northern rural areas. Central residential and business districts of Abidjan (Lagunes) are safe during daylight hours but caution should be exercised everywhere after dark due to the risks posed by crime. Western border areas are subject to sudden, if localised outbreaks of ethnic violence and to the criminal activities of gunmen, including former militias, who engage in highway banditry. Demobilised former rebels also engage in highway banditry in the north, particularly in the vicinity of the borders with Burkina Faso and Mali. Generally, due to residual antagonism between ethnic and political groups dating back to exactions committed during the 2010-11 conflict, there remains a credible potential for ethnically or politically motivated violence, particularly at sensitive times such as election cycles.

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.
