National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
The Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Trade Promotion (MFTP) advises Maltese citizens travelling to Djibouti against all travel to the border with Eritrea. Following the military clashes between Djibouti and Eritrea in 2008, the situation remains fragile, and further conflict is possible. Travellers must exercise great caution if travelling to remote areas, such as the border with Somaliland, as security presence is low. Moreover, terrorist attacks are very likely to happen, and these can occur in place visited by tourists. Hence, tourists must be vigilant at all times, especially in crowded and public areas. It is important to follow the advice of local authorities.

Danger level: 4

Avoid all travel to certain areas.

If there is more than one advisory/message of a single government for a given country, it indicates regional differences in means of security for your personal health and well-being. Single messages can indicate specific regions to be safer or less safe as mentioned in the main advisory. In these cases it's advisable to consult your own governments information.
