Burkina Faso - Q&A - (October 3, 2022)


What is your assessment of the situation in Burkina Faso?

We are monitoring developments in the situation there very closely. France is not taking sides, as Foreign Minister Catherine Colonna said earlier.

We repeat our recommendations to our citizens in Burkina Faso: we call on them to exercise the utmost caution and to remain home until further notice. Their safety is our priority. Updated recommendations are posted on the Travel Advisory pages of the France Diplomatie website and on our Embassy site.

The Embassy’s Crisis Center and the Ministry’s Crisis and Support Center are standing by.
We are taking all necessary precautions. The Embassy, Consulate-General and all French government offices remain closed until further notice.
