The Foreign and Commonwealth Office advises all UK citizens in Nigeria regularly to check our travel advice website at:

www.fco.gov.uk/en/travel-and-living-abroad/travel-advice-by-country/sub-saharan-africa/nigeria

Our travel advice is frequently updated in the light of our assessment of potential threats and dangers to British citizens. Following the series of attacks in Kano city on 20 January, our Nigeria travel advice currently states that:

“we advise against all but essential travel to Kano city. Those in Kano city should remain vigilant and exercise caution.”

We also advise British nationals to register with our LOCATE service when travelling abroad at:
