Liberia Travel Warning

Issued by US Department of State

Feb 16, 2007

The Department of State continues to be concerned about the security situation in Liberia and urges American citizens contemplating a visit to Liberia to obtain updated security information before they travel and to be prepared to change their plans at short notice. Americans in Liberia should use caution while in country and make an effort to plan in advance all aspects of their stay. This updates and supersedes the Travel Warning of March 30, 2006.

The UN's deployment of 15,000 peacekeepers and over 1,200 police advisors has kept the overall security situation peaceful and stable over the past year. However, crime rates are still high, and resources for responding to emergencies of any kind are minimal. Liberia's local and national police forces are in the process of being reconstituted and still lack adequate capacity to prevent or to investigate criminal activity.

The Department of State advises American citizens traveling to Liberia to ensure before arrival that they have made proper arrangements for transportation from the international airport outside of Monrovia into the city center and for lodging and emergency medical care, including obtaining medical evacuation insurance.

While in Liberia, U.S. citizens should avoid political rallies or street demonstrations, as such gatherings hold the potential for turning violent. In addition, Liberia's economy remains depressed. Poverty is endemic and the nationwide unemployment rate is very high. Foreigners, including Americans, are high-profile targets for robbery. Incidents of violent crime, including rape, have also been reported. Americans should monitor the local media for developments that may affect their safety and security and report any criminal activity against their person or property to the U.S. Embassy in Monrovia.

U.S. citizens in Liberia should be aware of their surroundings at all times and use caution in traveling. Traveling alone or after dark or walking along deserted beaches is strongly discouraged. Poor road conditions, especially during the rainy season, and limited telecommunications inhibit the U.S. Embassy's ability to assist U.S. citizens outside the Monrovia area.

Americans who remain in or travel to Liberia should register with the Embassy's Consular Section through the State Department's travel registration website, https://travelregistration.state.gov . By registering, American citizens make it easier for the Embassy to contact them in case of emergency and provide updated security information. Americans without Internet access may register directly with the Embassy, which is located at 111 United Nations Drive, Mamba Point, Monrovia, Liberia; tel. (231) 226-370; fax (231) 226-148. American citizen services are Monday - Thursday 3:00 to 5:00 and Friday 8:00 - 2:00 and 3:00 to 5:00.

For additional information, consult the Department of State's Consular Information Sheet for Liberia on the Internet at http://travel.state.gov. American citizens may obtain up-to-date information on security conditions in Liberia at 1-888-407-4747 toll free in the United States and Canada, or 1-202-501-4444 from all other countries.
