UK issues travel advisory against Djibouti border with Eritrea

The British government has issued travel advisory against Djibouti warning its citizens not travel areas on Djibouti’s border with Eritrea.

In its revised advisory issues Friday, the UK Foreign Office said Djibouti was still under active threats of terrorist attacks.

“Terrorists are likely to try to carry out attacks in Djibouti. Attacks can’t be ruled out and could be indiscriminate, including in places frequented by expatriates and foreign travellers,” the advisory reads in part.

The advisory said Djibouti remains one of the main routes for those fleeing the conflict in Yemen.

The advisory warns against any travel to Djibouti and it urged citizens seeking consular services to contact the British embassy in Addis Ababa.

“Consular support is limited in Djibouti as there is no British Embassy. The British Honorary Consul in Djibouti can only offer limited help. However, the British Embassy in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia can provide consular support to British nationals. If you need consular assistance you should contact the British Embassy in Addis Ababa,” the office said.

” Limited arrangements are in place to facilitate onward travel for British nationals arriving in Djibouti. However, the UK government’s ability to help is limited and you’ll be expected to cover the cost of visas, accommodation, insurance and onward travel yourself. Any travel options you pursue are taken at your own risk.”
