The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) advise against all travel to within 50km of the border with the Central African Republic in Likouala region

The FCDO advise against all but essential travel to:

  • the Boko, Kindamba, Kinkala, Mayama and Mindouli districts of Pool region
  • the Mouyondzi district of Bouenza region

Before you travel, check the ‘Entry requirements’ section for The Republic of the Congo’s current entry restrictions and requirements. These may change with little warning. Monitor this advice for the latest updates and stay in contact with your travel provider.

If you plan to pass through another country to return to the UK, check the travel advice for the country you’re transiting.

It is more important than ever to get travel insurance and check it provides sufficient cover. See the FCDO’s guidance on foreign travel insurance.

Consular support is limited in the Republic of the Congo as there is no British Embassy. However, the British Embassy Kinshasa, in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) can provide limited remote consular support to British nationals.

The state of public health emergency remains in force.

Although there’s no recent history of terrorism in the Republic of the Congo, attacks cannot be ruled out. See Terrorism. Take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before you travel.
