Advice For Travellers

Security measures will be heightened during the period of this Summit.

Travellers should be aware that some countries have issued security alerts to exercise heightened vigilance with respect to personal safety in Nairobi. Although many travellers to Kenya have no safety and security problems, some governments continually receive information about terrorist threats against USA, Western and Kenyan interests in Kenya.

Al-Shabaab militants have stated they are at war with Kenya and have carried out deadly attacks in this country.
