Event

The Cameroonian Electoral commission (ELECAM) has stated that there are no plans to ban cell phone usage at polling stations during the October 7 presidential election, despite rumors. Restrictions on telecommunications in the run-up to the vote and in its aftermath remain possible, however, especially in the event of unrest.

Advice

Individuals in Cameroon are advised to closely monitor developments and avoid any rallies, protests, or other large public gatherings due to the potential for unrest. Travelers should ensure they have alternate means of communication should there be a cut to Internet services.
