Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) Security Overview
The Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) is considered a HIGH risk travel destination. The threat of violent crime is a concern, particularly in urban areas. Muggings, robbery, burglary and petty crimes (including pickpocketing) are common. Vehicle theft and theft from vehicles are also on the rise, especially in Kinshasa. Medical facilities are basic and limited to Kinshasa. Soldiers and police are poorly trained, ill-disciplined and infrequently paid. They retain the power to act arbitrarily, solicit bribes and may commit acts of theft or armed robbery at roadblocks or elsewhere. Illegal roadblocks are common but are indistinguishable from legitimate police operations.
