Buircíne Fasó

Má tá tú ag taisteal go Buircíne Fasó, gheobhaidh tú leideanna praiticiúla agus eolas áisiúil sa mhír comhairle taistil agus san eolas nuashonraithe.

Faigh árachas taistil agus liachta

Faigh árachas taistil cuimsitheach i gcónaí a chlúdóidh gach costas liachta thar lear, aslonnú liachta san áireamh, sula dtéann tú ag taisteal. Ní féidir linn íoc as aon chostais éigeandála a d’fhéadfadh a bheith ort ar do thuras. Mar sin, d’fhéadfadh árachas taistil go leor leor airgid a shábháil duit, má bhíonn fadhbanna agat. Ná déan dearmad na coinníollacha i do pholasaí a léamh agus a chinntiú go gclúdaíonn sé gach rud atá beartaithe agat a dhéanamh.

Forléargas

Déanfaimid ár ndícheall an chomhairle taistil is déanaí a thabhairt duit i nGaeilge, ach mar gheall go bhféadfadh athrú an-tapa teacht ar chúrsaí, go háirithe i gcás géarchéime, ní féidir linn a ghealladh go mbeidh an chomhairle taistil i nGaeilge go hiomlán cothrom le dáta.  Lena chinntiú go bhfaighidh tú an chomhairle is déanaí, go háirithe maidir le stádas slándála, féach an leagan Béarla chomh maith, nó déan teagmháil díreach linn.

Stádas slándála

Má tá tú ag pleanáil cuairt a thabhairt ar an tír, molaimid duit an stádas slándála sa cholún ar thaobh na láimhe deise den leathanach seo a sheiceáil.

Foláireamh taistil

Protests have been witnessed in the capital, Ouagadougou, and as of Thursday 30 October, violence has been reported in other parts of the country, including the country’s second city of Bobo Dioulasso. With reports that some protestors have been killed, it is possible that the situation may deteriorate and we advise that you should stay indoors, be aware of your surroundings and monitor local media for updates.

There is an underlying threat from terrorism. Attacks could be indiscriminate, including places where foreigners gather. There is a credible risk that terrorist groups may cross the northern borders from neighbouring countries to carry out kidnap attacks.

Cláraigh linn

Má tá sé i gceist agat cuairt a thabhairt ar an tír seo nó fanacht inti, ba chóir duit do chuid mionsonraí a chlárú linn, ionas go bhféadfaimid tú a aimsiú go tapa sa chás go dtarlódh géarchéim nach raibh súil léi, mar shampla tubaiste nádúrtha, nó eachtra éigeandála i do theaghlach, agus tú thar lear. Ansin, d’fhéadfaimis cabhair a thairiscint duitse nó do do theaghlach más gá.

Comhairle Uainne

Níl Ambasáid ná Consalacht ag Éire sa tír agus mar sin ní féidir linn comhairle taistil mhionsonraithe a fhíorú lena chinntiú go bhfuil sí cruinn, cuí agus cothrom le dáta.

Is féidir leat do chuid taighde féin a dhéanamh, áfach; tá naisc chuig tuilleadh comhairle taistil ó aireachtaí eachtracha eile le fáil sa rannán Eolas Breise.

Molaimid freisin go léifeá an treoir taistil Eolas Roimh Thaisteal chun leideanna praiticiúla a fháil ar thaisteal thar lear.

Cúnamh Éigeandála

De bharr nach bhfuil Ambasáid ná Consalacht na hÉireann sa tír, táimid teoranta ó thaobh cúnamh a thairiscint duit i gcás éigeandála.

Áitiúil

Is minic gur fearr a mbíonn daoine áitiúla in ann cabhrú leat, mar sin labhair le muintir na háite, d’ionadaí tionscnóra turas nó bainistíocht d’óstáin. 

An tAonad Cúnaimh Consalachta i mBaile Átha Cliath

Má tharlaíonn éigeandáil nó má tá cabhair agus comhairle uait, féadfaidh tú teagmháil a dhéanamh freisin leis an Aonad Cúnaimh Consalachta sa Roinn Gnóthaí Eachtracha agus Trádála i mBaile Átha Cliath ag +353 1 408 2000.

Ambasáidí AE eile

Féadfaidh tú iarracht a dhéanamh dul i dteagmháil le hAmbasáidí, Consalachtaí de Thíortha AE eile chomh maith, chun tacaíocht, comhairle agus cúnamh consalachta éigeandála a fháil.

Health

Get travel and medical insurance

Before travelling, the Department strongly recommends that you obtain comprehensive travel insurance which will cover all overseas medical costs, including medical repatriation/evacuation, repatriation of remains and legal costs. You should check any exclusions and, in particular, that your policy covers you for the activities you want to undertake.

Vaccinations

Check what vaccinations you may need for your trip at least eight weeks before you travel. We can’t advise you on vaccinations, but you can get information about vaccinations from your local GP or an International Health and Travel Centre.

Evidence of vaccination (in the form of a certificate) can be a requirement for entry to some countries.

Medication

Make sure you bring enough medication for your entire trip and for any unexpected delays. You may wish to also bring copies of your prescription in case you lose your medication.

Additional Information

Passports

It’s advisable to take a number of photocopies of your passport with you when travelling to Burkina Faso and you should carry a photocopy of your passport at all times during your stay.

If your passport is lost or stolen while you’re abroad, we can help.

What we can do:

  • Issue you a replacement passport that will let you finish your trip, or;
  • Issue you with an emergency travel document to get you home.

We’ll do our best to help you as quickly as possible but this can take some time. Your location and circumstances may limit the help we can give you. As Ireland does not have an Embassy or Consulate in Burkina Faso there may be additional complications in processing and application for a new passport.

You should contact the nearest Irish Embassy or Consulate to find out what you need to do to apply for a passport. They will also be able to advise you on the fees which apply.

More advice

Ireland doesn’t have an Embassy or Consulate in Burkina Faso so we can’t verify detailed travel advice to ensure that it’s accurate, appropriate and up to date. However, we encourage you to conduct your own research and to read these links to travel advice from other foreign ministries:
