Jemen

Översikt

Political instability following prolonged anti-government protests in 2011 has heightened Yemen’s already-fragile security environment. The country faces severe social and economic challenges which have a major impact on its security. A pro-autonomy Houthi rebellion in the north, a strong secessionist movement in the south and a nationwide threat of terrorism is compounded by high levels of poverty, the depletion of resources, a weak security apparatus, widespread corruption and political dysfunction. An attempted Houthi takeover of the state since September 2014 has severely undermined security in Yemen, resulting in a Saudi-led coalition launching airstrikes against the group, triggering a civil war across the country. Yemen's risk profile is therefore considered high and all travel is advised against. With the death of former president Ali Abdullah Saleh in early December 2017, there have been concerns that the conflict will further spiral out of control.

Hälsa, sjukdomar och vaccination

Travellers are advised to consult a travel health specialist or general practitioner (GP) at least four to eight weeks prior to departure where possible to allow for adequate medical precautions to be put in place.

It is essential to check that all vaccinations are up to date. Vaccinations for travel to Yemen are Hepatitis A, Typhoid, MMR and Tetanus-Diphtheria. Vaccinations against Hepatitis B, Tuberculosis and Rabies may also be advised. A valid Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate is required for entry into Yemen if you are arriving from a country where the virus is endemic.

Malaria is risk in much of Yemen. However, it is not a risk in Sana’a or in areas at altitudes above 2000m. Chloroquine-resistant strains of malaria have been reported in the country. Other insect-borne diseases including dengue fever are common. 

The altitude in the Sana'a region can cause problems for travellers, particularly those who suffer from lung, heart or chest problems.

Tap water should not be consumed. Avoid ice in drinks and ensure fruit and vegetables have been cleaned and/or cooked thoroughly.

It is advisable to take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance prior to travel. Bring your own prescription drugs and preventative medicines.

Health care in Yemen remains below the standards found in the US or Europe. Facilities are available in the major cities of Sana’a and Aden, although more rural areas will often lack even basic medical services. Major illnesses may require an evacuation to a more state-of-the-art medical facility. Be aware that most doctors and medical staff will demand payment in cash, regardless of your health insurance policy.

Pass

Travellers must enter Yemen on a passport with at least six months validity from the date of entering the country. Proof of an onward journey, such as a return ticket, may be required.

Visum

It is necessary to arrange a visa ahead of travel, via a local embassy or tourist operators in the country.

European and US nationals report severe difficulties in obtaining visas at their local embassies. Visas are usually valid for 30 days. It is necessary to register at the local police station if your stay is for longer than 14 days.

To obtain a business visa, applicants must have a letter from their company explaining the purpose of the visit and the nature of business. Multiple-entry business visas are also available.
