Smartraveller Advice
17 December 2014

This Advice was last issued on Wednesday, 17 December 2014. This advice contains new information under Entry and exit (on 16 December 2014 Kenya announced that it had revoked all work permits granted to foreigners working in the charitable sector, effective immediately. Expatriates now require a valid work permit issued through the Charity Register and are not permitted to work in the charity sector using tourist visas). We also wish to remind Australians to be particularly vigilant during the Christmas and New Year period. Militants have used such occasions to mount attacks in the past. We continue to advise Australians to reconsider their need to travel to Nairobi, Mombasa and outskirts, coastal Tana River county and Lamu county due to the high threat of terrorist attack and high level of crime. We advise Australians to reconsider their need to travel along the A2 highway from Isiolo to Moyale. We also continue to strongly advise Australians not to travel to border regions with Ethiopia and South Sudan, because of the extremely dangerous security situation. Elsewhere in Kenya we advise Australians to exercise a high degree of caution.
