Kiwayu remains in the "all but essential" zoneFCO statement reads
This advice has been reviewed and reissued with amendments to the Travel Summary and the Safety and Security section. The overall level of the advice has changed. We no longer advise against all but essential travel to all coastal areas within 150km of the Somali border. We now advise against all but essential travel to within 60km of the Somali border (including Kiwayu and coastal areas north of Pate Island), to Garissa district and to low income areas of Nairobi, including all township or slum areas.
