The UK government advises against all travel to Yemen due to the serious risk to security. We keep the situation on the ground under careful review and will re-establish visits to Yemen when the security situation permits us to do so.

Although DFID staff cannot currently visit Yemen, we are in regular communication with programme partners, the UN Humanitarian Coordinator and others to ensure we have a clear understanding of the humanitarian situation in Yemen.
