How long is the flight to Somalia from the US?

Flights to Somalia will vary in duration depending on their US city of origin. Chicago flights to Somalia typically average duration of 17h 45m for a one-stop flight. The exact city of arrival could impact flight times by as much as one hour, as well. Flights from New York will have a duration that averages 30h 20m, again depending on the exact city of arrival and stopovers, as well as the duration of stopovers. Be wary of discount fares, as they could substantially increase travel time.

Which cities offer direct flights to Somalia from the US?

Direct flights to Somalia are not available from any US cities at the present time. All major cities and airports offer one-stop flights and other indirect routes to Somalia, including Boston, New York, Houston, Chicago, and Washington. Flights are offered by Ethiopian Air with arrivals landing in Mogadishu, Garowe, or Hargeisa. There are multi-stop flights available, as well, but with Somalia flight deals it is fairly easy to find a one-stop route that offers a reasonable fare.

What is the best way to travel around Somalia?

Somalia is difficult for road travel and passenger transport is heavily limited as most roads are in disrepair. It is possible to drive in between major cities and you can hire a car in Mogadishu. Taxis are also available in most large towns. Anyone wishing to drive must have an International Driving Permit. There are minibusses available in Mogadishu, as well, and walking is always a choice when you are in towns.

What are some things to do in Somalia?

Somalia is essentially a strip of desert coastline, so it has plenty of beautiful beaches to explore. There is also a coral reef that runs from the Kenyan border to Mogadishu, with white sands and clear blue seas from one end of the country to the other. The Shanghai Old City is a scenic attraction and was once home to the wealthy. The old city walls and mosques offer a glimpse of the country’s history. Cave paintings can be explored in Las Geel, a site worthy of UNECSO World Heritage Site status. Tourists can also visit the War Memorial at Hargeisa in Somaliland, or check out the wildlife and lush landscapes of Kismayo National Park. Species found at the park include zebras, elephants, giraffes, and other East African wildlife.

Do I need a passport or visa to fly to Somalia?

If you are flying to Somalia and you are a US citizen, you will need to have your US passport with you at all times. This document should be valid for the duration of your stay and include at least one blank page. In addition, you will need to apply for a 60-day tourist visa by applying online or getting one when you arrive in Mogadishu. Visas are available for $60 USD.
