The Foreign Office today revised its travel advice for Guinea. Following the stabilisation of the security situation we are no longer advising against all travel and are now advising against all but essential travel.
The revelent summary points now read:
* “We advise against all but essential travel to Guinea at the present time.
* “Martial law and curfew were lifted on 23 February 2007. Guinea has been calm since the strike ended on 27 February, and Prime Minister Kouyate was appointed on 1 March. However, further problems cannot be ruled out until he appoints a new government. British nationals in Guinea should continue to monitor events closely and avoid any demonstrations and political rallies.”
