Practical Information in Hargeisa

Edit This
Arriving at Hargeisa Airport for the first time can be slightly disconcerting. The arrivals hall is pretty basic, and you need to complete a landing card. You then take this to immigration, who will stamp your passport. (You will need a visa before you arrive - it is too risky to hope to get one on arrival). You then go to the bank official next to the immigration desk and change $50 into Somaliland Shillings. You will get a receipt for this, which you then show to the official at the exit. The exchange rate is terrible, but there is no way around this unless you can get in as an "official" guest.

On the way out of Somaliland you will be charged an airport/departure tax, which seems to vary from time to time. $12 seems to be the going rate at the moment for the Passanger with the resident visa and $32 for all the other passangers. It is recommended to contact (email) Daallo Airlines Hargiesa office management to arrange your visa 2 to 7 days before your flight.
