Yemen Travel Information
Since 2015, a Saudi-led military coalition has been
fighting against Houthi rebels in control of parts of
the country. Conditions for the civilian population are
characterized by war-torn Yemen being one of the biggest
humanitarian disasters in the world (hunger, diseases,
food shortages, water, medicines, other emergencies and
all other goods) and by the weakening of the state
apparatus in the country. The security situation is very
difficult in many areas.
The Norwegian Travel Council discourages all travel
to Yemen and encourages all Norwegian citizens to leave
the country. In order to prevent the spread of the
corona virus, all transport in and out of the country
(via air, boat or car / road) has been stopped, except
for aircraft with humanitarian aid. The situation in the
country as of April 2020 is even more unclear than
before due to the handling of the coronavirus.
This also means that the Ministry does not have
travel information for Yemen as for other countries. The
ongoing war has meant that neither the embassy nor
others have been able to regularly enter and provide
information to provide common health, safety or other
