Smartraveller Advice
7 December 2016

In November 2016, clashes between armed groups and security forces in the vicinity of Kasese, in Uganda's west, resulted in some 50 people reported killed. We continue to advise Australians to reconsider travel in the area due to the volatile security situation (see Safety and security). This travel advice has been reviewed and remains current. We continue to advise Australians to exercise a high degree of caution in Uganda overall. Higher levels apply in some parts of the country.

Smartraveller Advice
7 December 2016

??An official period of national mourning of nine days has been declared by Cuban authorities following the passing of former president Fidel Castro on 25 November. To demonstrate respect for the Cuban people during this time, refrain from any behaviour that may be interpreted as festive, disrespectful or disorderly. Anticipate service closures, travel disruptions and road closures. Follow all instructions of local authorities and monitor local media for more information about the mourning period. The level of the advice has not changed. We continue to advise Australians to exercise normal safety precautions in Cuba.
