Comoros Official Info

Contributed By RealAdventures Support

The Comoros is a developing island nation located in the Indian Ocean off the east coast of Africa. Facilities for tourism are limited, and telecommunication links are extremely unreliable.

Contributed By RealAdventures Support

A passport and onward/return ticket are required. A three-week entry visa, which may be extended, may be obtained upon arrival at the airport. Travelers should obtain the latest details from the Mission of the Federal Islamic Republic of the Comoros, 420 East 50th Street, New York, NY 10022; telephone number (212) 972-8010, fax (212) 983-4712. Overseas inquiries may be made at the nearest Comorian or Senegalese Embassy or Consulate.

Access to Anjouan, Comoros’ second largest island, which declared itself independent in 1997, requires prior permission from authorities in Anjouan.

The Comoros Islands have experienced frequent strikes and civil unrest, resulting in violent clashes between police and demonstrators. Although foreign residents and visitors have not been targeted, the potential for further outbreaks of civil disorder remains high.

Anjouan, the second largest island in Comoros, declared itself independent in 1997. There has been fighting between various armed groups since December 1998. U.S. citizens are urged to defer non-essential travel to Anjouan, while U.S. residents are urged to review their own personal safety in determining whether to remain on the island.

In April 1999, there was a coup d’etat on Grand Comore following a week of violent protests against Anjouanais residents there. Although the situation on Grand Comore has calmed, the potential for further outbreaks of violence exists.

U.S. citizens should avoid political rallies and street demonstrations and maintain security awareness at all times.

Petty crime is common. Pick-pocketing, purse snatching, and various types of scams are the most common forms of crime confronting U.S. travelers in crowded market areas, beaches and parks.

Contributed By RealAdventures Support

Medical facilities in Comoros are poor. Travelers should bring their own supplies of prescription drugs and preventive medicines. Doctors and hospitals often expect immediate cash payment for health services. The Medicare/Medicaid program does not provide for payment of medical services outside the United States.

Check with your own insurance company to confirm whether your policy applies overseas, including provision for medical evacuation. Ascertain whether payment will be made to the overseas hospital or doctor, or whether you will be reimbursed later for expenses you incur. Some insurance policies also include coverage for psychiatric treatment and for disposition of remains in the event of death. Travelers to Comoros are strongly urged to consider supplemental medical/travelers’ insurance as these policies are inexpensive when compared to the costs of a medical evacuation.
