      Visas? Mosquitos net?

      Djibouti May 2, 2006 at 10:38 AM

      Hi again, well I'm definitely going! Travel is now booked.
      1) Now regarding visas, I'm French (so French Passport) living in UK.
      Do I need a visa? I'm getting conflicting infos but it looks like I may need one. Also I can't find any embassy or consulate of Djibouti in London, does any one know where I can get visa and whether it's cheaper in advance or on arrival.

      2) I now that it will be hot but what's teh situation re mosquitos? do I need a net? I'll be on a diving boat all week except 1 night in Djibouti town. Will spray be sufficient or do I need a net?

      Thanks for any tips.
