The US has issued a travel warning to its citizens about Tanzania, citing worries over COVID-19, crime, terrorism, and threats against LGBTI people. The US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued a Level 4 travel warning for the East African country on Monday. Before planning any international trip, the United States now urges its people to "examine the CDC's precise advice for vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers."
Samia's state joins France, Portugal, and Jordan on the list of countries with the most severe travel warnings. The United States also raised concern about terrorism risks in Tanzania, advising Americans to rethink visiting the Mtwara Region in southern Tanzania owing to the threat of terrorism.
A circular dated December 6 warned that "terrorist groups could attack in Tanzania with little or no warning, targeting embassies, police stations, mosques, and other areas frequented by Westerners."
LGBTI community members are also discouraged from visiting the nation, citing arrests, harassment, and charges for unrelated offenses as reasons. "Persons imprisoned on suspicion of same-sex sexual behavior may be subjected to invasive anal inspections."
