Comoros - Level 3: Reconsider Travel


Reconsider travel to The Union of the Comoros due to civil unrest.                   

Comoros is experiencing civil and political unrest, including armed conflict, roadblocks, and protests following a contested election. Comorian officials have responded to demonstrations with force. Travel services into, out of, and within the Comoros may be disrupted without notice. U.S. government personnel under Chief of Mission authority have been temporarily relocated off Comoros.    

The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in the Union of the Comoros. U.S. citizens in the Comoros must contact the U.S. Embassy in Antananarivo for consular assistance.

Read the Safety and Security section on the Country Information page.

If you decide to travel to Comoros: 

  • Visit our website for Travel to High-Risk Areas.
  • Stay away from political rallies, demonstrations, and crowds.
  • Monitor local media for breaking events and be prepared to adjust your plans.
  • Be aware of your surroundings.
  • Keep travel documents up to date and easily accessible.
  • Have evacuation plans that do not rely on U.S. government assistance.
  • Enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive Alerts and make it easier to locate you in an emergency.
  • Follow the Department of State on Facebook and Twitter.
  • U.S. citizens who travel abroad should always have a contingency plan for emergency situations.  Review the Traveler’s Checklist
