Travel Alert: Gabon [September 27, 2021]

Travel Alert

Protesters have pleaded with the public to participate in a nationwide general strike on October 15, 2021.  Protesters have asked public and private sector employees as well as students to stay at home. They have also called on business owners to remain closed. The strike is primarily organized in opposition to restrictions related to the COVID-19 pandemic, notably a requirement for vaccinations to access certain public spaces.

It is not clear if major opposition groups or trade unions will support the call to strike. If they do, the potential for widespread business and transport disruptions is likely to occur. Associated protests are possible in urban centers. Should protests occur, security forces will likely deploy to monitor gatherings. Riskovery recommends that you check all transport reservations and appointments, including at public health centers and other government facilities on October 15, 2021.
