What not to do when visiting Ivory Coast

1/4
Marker Ivory Coast
Business & Communication

Don’t forget to shake hands when greeting (men) - always ask about the person’s health, family or work. Women usually kiss each other three times on the cheeks, alternating the sides.

Don’t necessarily use local vans ("Gbaka") - they are frequently involved in accidents.

Marker Ivory Coast
Business & Communication

Don’t be surprised by high customs fees if you bring new items that are or may appear to/for resale - be prepared to pay almost 45% in customs duties. There are many cases travellers have no receipts and officers assigned higher values for the items.

Don't underestimate the power of the ocean when swimming - the currents along the coast can be powerful and treacherous.
