Regional Instability and Travel Warning

Abaarso School is located in a region of the world that has been known for chronic instability and the presence of terrorist groups. As of October 1st, 2015, the U.S. State Department issued the following warning:

“There is no U.S. Embassy or other formal U.S. diplomatic facility in Somalia at this time. Consequently, the U.S. government is not in a position to assist or effectively provide services to U.S. citizens in Somalia. In light of this and continuous security threats, the U.S. government recommends that U.S. citizens avoid all travel to Somalia.”

The U.S. State Department updates this warning periodically so prospective teachers should look directly to the Somalia Travel Warning on the United States Department of State website.

Somaliland, an independent but unrecognized country within what is officially Somalia, has experienced relative peace for many years. However, the region is still considered by most governments to be part of Somalia and therefore is included in all such warnings and regulations. Abaarso does its best to protect its students and staff by using all available resources and security personnel, but cannot guarantee the safety or security of anyone traveling in this area. Abaarso applicants must understand and accept the inherent risks in living and working in this region.

More information and updated travel warnings can be found on the State Department website.
