Political stability in Gabon remains uncertain following the result of the 2016 presidential election, with violent clashes occurring between demonstrators and security forces at that time. Further protests may quickly turn violent without warning. You should avoid all demonstrations and rallies and remain vigilant during periods of unrest. See Political situation.

During periods of unrest, police checks may increase. Make sure you have all required documentation with you and avoid large gatherings.

Although there’s no recent history of terrorism in Gabon, attacks can’t be ruled out. See Terrorism

UK health authorities have classified Gabon as having a risk of Zika virus transmission. For information and advice about the risks associated with Zika virus, visit the National Travel Health Network and Centre website.
