Health & safety

Dangers & annoyances

Djibouti is a relatively safe country, and serious crime or hostility aimed specifically at travellers is very rare. However, the usual big-city precautions apply.

Djibouti’s security services are known for being sensitive and active. There is no reason why travellers should attract the attention of the police, but if it happens, remain polite and calm, it’s usually pretty harmless.
