We were instructed to get a Visa at the airport upon arrival, apparently they don’t have a US Embassy to apply for a Visa since Somaliland isn’t recognized. We aren’t comfortable with that, what if they don’t allow us in? We were able to pay someone to get the visas ahead of time so that problem is resolved and now we don’t have to stand in line for hours.   The closest US Embassy is in Kenya or Ethiopia. Fingers crossed nothing goes wrong. We are also bringing expensive medical supplies for the conservation center. I have no idea how to even process this and get it through customs. Another first. We have to get it carefully through security in the US and Ethiopia without getting items stolen or broken.  We are still not sure if and what kind of vista we need for Ethiopia.

Cheetah Conservation Fund needs appropriate medical equipment for their facility in Somaliland!
