Petty crimes such as robbery and vehicle theft are the most common here, sometimes with violence. Armed banditry is a growing problem throughout the country and consequently, security personnel routinely establish random checkpoints and check travel documents. Keep a copy of your passport, driverÂ’s license and vehicle registration if driving in a secure location in case of theft. Carjackings occur frequently, especially in Yaounde and Douala, but also occasionally on rural highways. Travel after dark should be avoided.
