Etiquette in Djibouti

Djibouti is located in East Africa and has a population of over 800,000 people.

The nation is a dominant-party semi-presidential republic.

The official languages of Djibouti are French and Arabic. Somali and Afar are both recognized.

Most Djiboutians follow Islam.

The currency of Djibouti is the Djiboutian franc.

Greetings are expected for even the most trivial conversation situations, and will be most appreciated if in Arabic or, if necessary, French.

If you’re going to take a photo of the locals, you must ask permission. Not doing so is considered inexcusably rude.
