hi i was wondering if any could give me some info on the best way, and any info on costs and times to travel from Ethiopia to Somaliland, then onto Djibouti
Hello, I am planning for a 10 day tour of Somaliland for late December. I would like to hear of other travelers experience while visiting there, and what you think are the best highlights and best beaches within this province. Im interested to see natural beauty areas, traditional villages, Islamic historical sights, and of course, the best beaches. Also, any comments on how was the food & hotels, security situation, and the local attitude towards foreign travelers would be welcome. thank you for any information.
I am curious if anyone out there who traveled from Ethiopia got checked on Yellow Fever upon entry to *Somaliland*, normally from Jijiga to Hargeisa, or vice versa?
Ethiopia is a Yellow Fever Risk country and entering into a non-Risk country e.g., Somaliland, from a Risk country may require proof of Yellow Fever vaccination.
Would it be safe for either gay/lesbian people to travel there? Bisexual people? What about transsexuals and transgender people?
I have found information on getting a visa to enter Somaliland. However, I can't figure out if further visas are needed to enter somalia and puntland. Does anyone know how/where to acquire a visa that allows travel into puntland or somalia itself?
Do you know the bus station that takes you from Somali-land Hargeisa to Addis Ababa to what is cost and times and days it leaves?
Possibly not usual question on this forum, but I will be moving to Puntland (Bosaso) in a week or so, and wanted to see if anyone has any real updated specific information that may be of use.
First, I am trying to look into flights from Geneva, and not sure if I should consider going via Djibouti or Addis (have no great desire to go rushing off to Mogadishu)
Second, any info anyone can send me on general issues such as what type of electrical plugs, real security situation in Puntland, etc gratefully appreciated.
Third - the old visa question. Is it realistic to get both an Ethiopian and Eritrean visa in my passport, or will one or the other country be a bit pissy about this. Do I need a visa in advance for Djibouti if I ending flying via there (given that I will need to spend a night) or can I get it at the airport. And as for Somalia, does anyone have any recent info on how I could proceed with a visa given that the Embassy in London is now closed.
Thanks in advance for any advice given, as I prefer to arrive somewhere (especially when moving to a new country) with as much realistic and recent info as possible.
where do US and/or Canadian citizens obtain a visa for entry in to Hargesia. Or for that matter, is a visa even necessary. Thank You.
Given the current situation in Somalia, is any travel possible in the country? The UK FCO don't advise it, and I'd obviously want to steer well clear of Mogadishu and conflict areas. But are there any beach locations in the north (Puntland?) that are safe to travel in?
is it worth visiting yet?

hi i will be traveling at the end of this year when i finish my studies but i am an sure of weather or not to go 2 somalia. im really afraid of the conditions but at the same time i feel the need 2 go there because im somalian.
should i be worried? and how do the somalains over there react 2 young women who aren't completely covered and not overly religious?
I was wondering what some could tell me about somaliland and hargeisa in particular. I'm planning on visiting my relatives next year, but I don't really know what to expect. I grew up in Engeland and I'm half somallander and half english. I asked family but they arn't really objective. So I'm asking an objective opinion.
Has anyone been to Somaliland (Hargeisa, etc) recently? Would the place, or at least Hargeisa and Berbara feel safe enough to visit on one's own? Are the borders with Ethiopia and Djibouti open currently? What are prices like - cheap hotels, public transport?
I have recently been matched through my volunteer organization with a refugee family from Somalia. My agency does not have a translator. I was hoping that someone could teach me a few basics in bantu so that I can be friendly and helpful when I visit. Thank you!
