On 9 April 2021, the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT) issued updated travel advice regarding Mozambique’s Cabo Delgado province, which reads in part as follows:

“Terrorists have attacked the town of Palma in Cabo Delgado. Terrorists remain active in the area and attacks on other towns are possible especially in areas frequented by foreigners or in towns and other areas where foreign companies operate and where expatriate staff reside. Australians in Cabo Delgado should leave the area if it is safe to do so. If you decide to remain in the area, maintain heightened security awareness, monitor local media and follow the advice of local authorities.”
