Gambia travel advice

There are reports of gunfire overnight (30 December) in the capital, Banjul. The situation now appears to be calm but precise details of what happened remain unclear.

If you’re in Banjul, you should remain indoors, avoid public gatherings and monitor local media for developments. There’s currently no access in or out of Banjul, but roads on the mainland between the airport and other areas, including the main holiday resort areas, appear to be open as usual. Banjul airport is unaffected and operating as normal. If you’re on holiday, you should remain within the area of your resort.
