D22 12 May 1995


The Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has reviewed its Travel Advice for Zaire issued on 18 August 1994 and advises that due to the recent advice of the outbreak of haemorrhagic fever in Bandundu Province and the continuing uncertain security concerns within the country, Australians should consider deferring all travel to that country for the time being. Representatives of the World Health Organisation

are currently investigating the extent of this outbreak and the Department of Health is monitoring the situation.

As there is no Australian representation in Zaire, Australians intending to visit Zaire may contact the Australian High Commission, 4th Floor, Karigamombe Centre, 53 Samora-Machel Avenue, Harare, (Telephone 263-4 794591) or the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade in Canberra (Telephone 06 261 3305) for further information.
