Why carry an IDP while driving in Somalia?

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!
