Visa Requirements for US Passport Holders – Somalia

US citizens are required to secure a visa prior to traveling to Somaliland and Puntland. Both regions issue their own visa at their respective ports of entry. US citizens must also have a valid passport for travel to Somaliland and Puntland. A passport and visa are also required for travel to other parts of Somalia, including Mogadishu. Certain Somali embassies, including those in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, and Nairobi, Kenya issue Somali visas. There are different requirements for travelers to Somalia depending on local authorities who have control on the air and seaports used as point of entry.
