This Advice was last issued on Saturday, 01 November 2014.
This advice contains new information in the Summary and under Safety and security (a nationwide curfew has been imposed from 7.00pm to 6.00am in response to the ongoing protests and violence in Ouagadougou). We continue to advise Australians to exercise a high degree of caution in Burkina Faso overall because of the threat of terrorist attack, kidnapping and violent crime. We advise against all travel to the region north of the line connecting Djibo and Dori in northern Burkina Faso due to the high threat of terrorist attack and kidnapping.
