Niger

Oversigt

Niger is located at the junction of West and Central Africa in a region persistently affected by instability. However, Niger maintains generally good bilateral relations with most of its neighbours and interstate conflict is not an immediate threat.

Niger suffers from high levels of political instability and in February 2010 President Mamadou Tandja was ousted from power after he attempted to amend the constitution to extend his term limits. The military junta that replaced him held multi-party elections in March 2011, but concerns remain of further military coups. The government has limited control over much of its territory and particularly its vast borders, which exacerbate the threat of conflict. A rebellion in the northern region, led by the ethnic-Tuareg population, formally ended in 2009. However, few of the group’s grievances have been adequately addressed and tensions remain high.

Sundhed, sygdomme og vaccination

You should have comprehensive insurance, including medical insurance, before departing for Niger.

All travellers should attempt to visit either their personal physician or a travel health clinic 4-8 weeks before departure. Specifically, you should make sure you have received the appropriate boosters or the primary course if not received previously, for Hepatitis A, Typhoid, MMR, and Tetanus-Diphtheria. Rabies, Meningococcal meningitis and Hepatitis B may also be advised.

A certificate of Yellow Fever vaccination is required when arriving in the country and if you are arriving from an area where there is a current cholera outbreak you may also need to provide evidence of a cholera vaccination.

The use of anti-malaria medicine is recommended for all areas of Niger.

Diarrhoea is the most common travel-related medical problem. Take all the necessary precautions when drinking water or eating food within the country. Only drink water from sealed bottles. It is advisable to bring anti-diarrhoea medication and oral rehydration salts to prevent dehydration.

Medical facilities are extremely limited in Niger and medication is often unavailable. Even the best hospitals in Niamey suffer from a lack of adequate facilities. Bring your own medication packed in the original boxes and clearly labelled. You should bring supporting documentation for any prescription medication. It is also advisable to bring your own needles.

In the event of serious medical problems it is advisable to leave the country for better medical facilities. Outside of the capital, medical facilities are extremely poor and often unavailable. Travel insurance policies must have an emergency repatriation clause that is applicable in Niger.

Pas

Passports and evidence of a Yellow Fever vaccination are required for entry into Niger. Passports need to be valid for another six months after exiting the country.

Visum

Travellers from outside the West Africa region require a visa for Niger. Travellers should, where possible, acquire these in their home country. If there is no Nigerien diplomatic representation in your country, you may be able to obtain one at the Niger border, or at Nigerien consular offices in Algeria, Benin, Chad, Mali and Nigeria.

An exit permit must be obtained from the Immigration Office in Niamey before departure.

A letter of responsibility is required for business travellers. The letter must be addressed to the Embassy of Niger explaining the purpose of the visit; and must be on your company letterhead and signed by somebody of your company other than yourself.
