The United States of America (USA), United Kingdom (UK) and Canada have updated their travel advisories for Mozambique, advising travellers to exercise a high degree of caution when travelling to the Cabo Delgado Province, or ideally, to avoid travel to the region. 

The alerts follow incidents of violence in the province, which have also resulted in fatalities. 

However, International SOS told eTNW they are not yet advising against travel to Mozambique as the attacks have occurred in the far North, in largely low traffic, rural regions. The spokesperson added that, at present, Mozambique is considered to be a medium risk destination.

TMC’s canvassed by eTNW also said that they are not yet cautioning clients against travel to Mozambique and that their clients are yet to be impacted. They added that they will only start to issue official warnings if advised to do so by International SOS and Travel Alert.

The US Embassy issued a security alert for the district headquarters of Palma, situated in Cabo Delgado Province, advising American citizens to consider departing the area immediately, in light of information pointing to the likelihood of imminent attacks on government and commercial centres in the district.

The security alert added: “Those who elect to remain in Palma district are strongly advised to avoid travel to the district headquarters and to postpone visits to both government offices and retail locations, including markets. American citizens with planned travel to Palma district are strongly advised to postpone such travel.”

The Government of Canada and The UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) have issued similar advisories.
