Cote d Ivoire – Level 2: Exercise Increased Caution Advisory Issued December 11, 2018

Exercise increased caution in Cote d’Ivoire due to crime and terrorism.

Violent crime, such as carjacking, robbery, and home invasion, is common.

Terrorists may attack with little or no warning, targeting areas frequented by foreigners, such as beaches.

The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens outside of Abidjan. Embassy personnel are prohibited from driving outside the major cities after dark, including between Abidjan, Grand Bassam, and Assinie.

Read the Safety and Security section on the country information page.
