UK Gov’t Issues Fresh Travel Advisories Against Visiting Kenya

The British government, via its Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Office (FCDO), has issued a warning to its citizens planning to travel to Kenya, advising them to be mindful of its travel advisory, especially concerning specific regions in the country.

The United Kingdom has explicitly cautioned its nationals against visiting certain areas of Kenya, unless absolutely necessary.

According to a travel advisory posted on the government’s website on Saturday, the UK strongly discouraged all non-essential travel to locations within 60 kilometers of Kenya’s border with Somalia.


Additionally, the British government has recommended against non-essential travel to eastern Garissa County and the entirety of Mandera County, excluding Mandera West sub-county.

Furthermore, UK citizens are advised to limit their visits within Lamu County to Lamu and Manda islands exclusively, while avoiding all other areas within the devolved unit unless necessary.

“FCDO advises against all but essential travel to within 15km of the coast between the Tana River and the Galana (Athi-Galana-Sabaki) River,” read the statement.

“No travel can be guaranteed safe. If you choose to travel, research your destinations and get appropriate travel insurance. Insurance should cover your itinerary, planned activities and expenses in an emergency.”

It however added: “Your travel insurance could be invalidated if you travel against FCDO advice.”
