Why carry an IDP while driving in Somalia?

Your IDP is a valid form of identification in more than 150 countries worldwide and contains your name, photo and driver information in the 12 most widely spoken languages in the world – it is understandable to most of the local officials and authorities of the countries you visit.

It translates your identification information into 12 languages — so it speaks the language even if you don’t. Somalia highly recommends an International Driving Permit.

Driving Rules in Somalia

You must have a very good reason for visiting Somalia. Despite the terror, Somalia offers considerable beauty that cannot be experienced anywhere in the world. If you really must travel, be sure to drive your own car and check these guides for added security measure.

Important Reminders:

  • Somalia is a right-hand drive country.
  • Minimum driving age is 18 years old.
  • Seat belt is a must for everyone.
  • Do not drink and drive.
  • The speed limit is 60 k m/h in urban places and 100 km/h in rural areas.
  • Unless you really have to, avoid travelling to Somalia.

Driving in the Winter

Somalia is an African country so there is no winter. Avoid travelling at all cost. If you really need to visit Somalia, keep your emergency kits handy at all times.

Stay safe!

At first I was disappointed in my order. Little did I realize the problem was caused by my own error. The Customer Service rep, who first addressed my issue, did not seem to address the issues. However, in a further exchange of emails, it was discovered where the problem was, in an error I made. Throughout the entire issue the customer service folks were courteous and helpful. The issue was finally resolved and the customer service people bent over backward to make sure I was satisfied. I am very pleased with the service I received
