Yemen Travel Guide




Travel to Yemen can be extremely adventurous and exciting, because this Middle East country is one of the least explored and hence, a visit to the land can unravel some of its best-preserved mysteries. However,
it is always advisable to first know some of the pre-requisites for traveling to Yemen. Tourists require a valid passport and visa in order to travel to Yemen and also a valid exit visa is needed for the foreigners before leaving the country. A passport issued during an entry into the country, does not exceed beyond 3 months. Therefore, for an extended stay foreigners need special permission from the Immigration and Passport Authority Headquarters.

However, it is very essential to know that the Republic of Yemen is comparatively a very new nation and hence, political conditions are not stable there. Therefore, it is best for foreigners to avoid areas where demonstrations may take place, as there are chances that they can turn violent. One of the most important things that should be kept in mind while embarking on a travel to Yemen is that, all major tourist facilities are available only in the major cities of Yemen like Taiz, Sana'a and Al-Hudaydah.
