Mali

We’ve reviewed our travel advice for Mali and continue to advise, do not travel to Mali.

The security situation in southern Mali has further deteriorated. The kidnapping risk of foreign nationals in southern Mali is increasing. Foreign nationals and foreign interests, including mining operations, may be targeted.

Terrorist attacks have increased since mid-July 2022 in central and southern Mali, including in Bamako. Terrorists have primarily targeted security forces facilities, resulting in casualties, including civilians. Targets can also be places frequented by foreigners (see ‘Safety’).

Do not travel to Mali due to the high risk of terrorist attacks and kidnapping. The Canadian Embassy can provide limited emergency consular assistance to Australians (see ‘Local contacts’).

We continue to advise:

Do not travel to Mali due to the high risk of terrorist attacks and kidnapping.
