Somalia: US Department of State Urges Citizens to Avoid All Travel

Effective December 26, the US Department of State continues to warn US citizens to avoid all travel to Somalia. This replaces the Travel Warning dated June 15, 2012, to update information on security concerns.

There is no US Embassy or other formal U.S. diplomatic presence in Somalia. Consequently, the U.S. government is not in a position to assist or effectively provide services to US citizens in Somalia. In light of this and continuous security threats, the US government recommends that you avoid all travel to Somalia.
