4. Be careful when taking pictures in Yemen. It is not allowed to take pictures of women. The same applies to the police, military people and objects, and city infrastructure.
5. Don’t forget that Yemen is a closed country, and so foreigners cannot move within its borders without permission.

6. Do not forget about safety measures. There were cases of kidnapping foreigners in order to get a ransom. In order to prevent potential problems, book rooms only in hotels for foreigners, do not go anywhere alone and choose only central streets when planning a route.
7. Do not consume alcohol anywhere outside restaurants and bars in hotels. Don’t forget that Yemen is a Muslim country, so the consumption of alcohol can cause punishment. Copyright
