Kenya warning

Travellers heading for Kenya are urged to check with their travel insurer following a UK Foreign Office (FCO) terrorism caution.  The US is amongst other countries that have also issued warnings.

Business travellers and holidaymakers planning trips to Kenya should speak to their travel insurer to check the cover available if they have to cancel their trip. 

Following current terrorist attacks and the continuing terrorist threat in the area, the FCO is advising against all but essential travel to Mombasa Island and within 5kms of the coast from Mtwapa creek in the north to Tiwi in the south (excluding Diani or Moi international airports).

Travellers currently in an area to which the FCO now advise against all but essential travel should consider whether they have an essential reason to remain.  If not, they should leave the area.  Moi International Airport is still accessible, but the FCO advises against travelling through Mombasa Island.  www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/kenya
