Local laws and Customs

You should carry ID (passport or residence permit) at all times, particularly when driving or taking a taxi, when the likelihood of having to produce it is high.

You should not become involved with drugs of any kind. All precious stones require an export licence. If you commit criminal offences, including drug trafficking and diamond smuggling you can expect to be subjected to local law.


Medical facilities are poor in Sierra Leone. There is no reciprocal health care agreement between the UK and Sierra Leone and you should expect to pay for all medical treatment, which is often requested in advance.

Lassa fever, previously prevalent in Kenema and the east, has spread to northern Sierra Leone. 48 deaths were reported in 2010. If you have travelled in these regions you should seek urgent medical advice if you suffer from any fever not positively identified as malaria.
