By Air
There is an international airport in Hargeisa, Burao and Berbera with flights to and from Addis Ababa (Ethiopia) Dubai, Djibouti, Somalia and Kenya.

By Land
You can enter Somaliland from Somalia, Djibouti and Ethiopia. However, journeys can be difficult due to tight security and road quality.

By Sea
The port of Berbera is one of Africa favourite ports of call for cruise liners. Immigration can be processed at the port facilities.

The bus network interconnects Somaliland cities and villages. The Network covers over 20 routes serving the main residential and commercial areas. Buses run at regular intervals from 7am to around 6pm.

Taxis are the most common way of getting around and it’s relatively cheap and comfortable. Taxis are privately owned and operated by individuals, so security consideration is important.

Car Hire
Self-drive cars are available from car rental companies for visitors who have an international driving licence. You will need your passport along with a valid driving licence.
