The FCO advise against all but essential travel to the Pool region. See Local travel

There were armed clashes in Brazzaville on 4 April 2016. You should maintain a high level of security awareness, avoid political protests and avoid travel after dark.

There is no British Embassy in the Republic of Congo and the level of consular assistance the FCO can offer to British nationals is limited. If you need consular assistance you should contact the British Honorary Consul in Brazzaville, Mr Dominique Picard (telephone: +242 055513251) or the British Embassy in Kinshasa, DRC.

There is a low threat from terrorism. See Terrorism
