Health – Visitors are reminded that Hepatitis A, Polio and Typhoid are all problems in the area and immunizations are recommended prior to travel.
Terrorism – This is an area which is known for being unsafe in terms of being a high risk terrorist threat area. Visitors have been victims of related problems over the past few years.
