Congo travel advice

We advise against all travel to the Likouala province due to a large influx of displaced people from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). UNHCR estimates around 110,000 refugees are currently in Likouala province.

We advise against all but essential travel to the Pool region.

There were reports of fighting and sporadic gunfire in Brazzaville on 16 December. This is believed to have been an isolated incident as a result of resistance during a military arrest. You should take extra care around the city and avoid any areas of unusual security force activity.
