Travel Insurance


I'm going to Djibouti and Somaliland as well as Mogadishu early next year and am having trouble finding travel insurance. The Australian government has these listed as 'Do not go' on their website and most insurance companies won't cover them.

Any tips or recommendations?

Usually your Cover is obtained from your home country, however some providers abroad dont have these small print, and allow others from outside the country,

Some have dual nationalitirs, but still have to be careful of small print, when obtaining cover from either of the two countries,

Covers range from general, to add ons, to anti fcdo, and much higher up to climbing Everest,


These are too many countries with fcdo, if you have trouble obtaining ANTI-fcdo cover, you can still visit DJI or SomaliLand or Somalia, they dont officially require it,

But your general cover is still valid for Ethiopia & other non fcdo affected countries,





There are also some countries that dont stamp your passport on entry,

For example, if you visit Israel they wont stamp your passport, and later when you visit Egypt or Algeria you just dont volunteer your travel history, and all is accepted,

Not sure if SomaliLand or Somalia stamp your passport, because some countries instead provide a slip or piece of paper, which you must keep it safe until you exit the country,
