UK updates advice for Ivory Coast

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office has revised its travel advice for Ivory Coast. Due to the stabilisation of the security situation and progression of the peace process we are no longer advising against all travel to Ivory Coast as a whole.

However, we continue to advise against all travel to the 18 Montagnes and Moyen Cavally regions and advise against all but essential travel to the rest of the country.

The relevant summary points now read:

* We advise against all travel to the 18 Montagnes and Moyen Cavally regions of western Ivory Coast due to the unstable security situation there. We advise against all but essential travel to the rest of the country. See the Terrorism/Security and Local Travel sections of this travel advice for more details.

* Whilst the situation throughout most of the country is stable, the potential for unrest and the sudden deterioration of law and order remains. Events can move fast and violence can erupt at short notice.

* We are unable to provide you with formal consular assistance in Ivory Coast. Nonetheless, you should register with our warden network in Abidjan, and our High Commission in Accra, Ghana. Should there be a serious breakdown in law and order, you should seek the assistance of other EU missions in Abidjan.
