We've reviewed our travel advice for Kenya. We continue to recommend you exercise a high degree of caution in Kenya overall, with higher advice levels in other parts of the country. This now includes Nairobi, where we advise Australians to reconsider their need to travel due to the ongoing, high threat of terrorist attack. If you are passing through Nairobi for other travel in Kenya, we recommend you minimise your time spent there and be alert to safety risks. If you have to be in Nairobi, consider the places likely to be terrorist targets and the level of security provided. Avoid venues or areas prone to attack.
We haven’t changed our travel advice:
Exercise a high degree of caution in Kenya overall due to the high threat of terrorist attack and high crime levels.
Higher levels apply in other parts of the country.
