Gabon – Opening of a crisis unit (September 1, 2016)


Jean-Marc Ayrault, Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Development, decided to open a crisis unit in order to respond to the concerns of French nationals, whether they are local residents or travelling in the country.

The crisis unit can be reached by calling: 01 43 17 55 95.

We are asking our compatriots to delay any plans to travel to Gabon and are asking those in the country to comply with the security guidelines and to stay at home.

We are launching an appeal to encourage our compatriots to register on the Ariane website if they are traveling in the country or to register on the list of French nationals abroad at our consular offices.
