U.K. travel advisory for 60 km of the Kenya-Somali border

Published on : Thursday, November 29, 2018

In the updated travel advisory, U.K.’s foreign office has cautioned her citizens against non-essential travel to areas within 60 kilometres of the Kenya-Somali border.

 

 

The fresh advisory followed the seizure of the 23-year-old Italian from a small town in Kilifi.

 

 

 

In the advisory issued on Tuesday, The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) said that the caution did not include Kenya’s safari destinations in the national parks, reserves and wildlife conservancies as well as beach resorts of Mombasa, Malindi, Kilifi, Watamu, Diani, Lamu Island and Manda Island.

 

 

 

 

The advisory also applies to Garissa, a larger part of the Lamu, areas north of Tana River within the Tana River County and those within 15km off the coast from the Tana River down to the Galana River.

 

 

 

The alerts have reduced the flow of revenues from tourism which is a valuable source of foreign exchange. It has forced several hotels out of business.

 

 

 

Earnings dropped from Sh94 billion in 2013 to Sh84.6 billion and rose to Sh120 billion last year.

 

 

 

National Intelligence Service deputy assistant director Alexander Muteshi in September said terrorism poses the greatest threat to the country. The authorities said that they had taken steps to thwart fresh terror attacks.
