Gabon

Summary

Political stability in Gabon remains uncertain following the result of the August 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.

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

There is no British Embassy in Gabon. In an emergency, you should contact the British High Commission in Yaoundé, Cameroon. See Consular Assistance

There is a low threat from terrorism. See Terrorism
