Liberia Travel Information
Travellers to Liberia should not be unduly worried about transgressing social etiquette. Avoid boisterous behaviour and ostentatious displays of wealth, and make sure to smile at and greet people in the street (especially when they have made eye contact with you). Unfortunately, due to the extreme safety precautions one must exercise when visiting Liberia, foreigners may find it impossible to 'scratch under the surface' of Liberian society. The country's reputation and the relative absence of foreigners makes it hard to relax in Liberia, but although the people may be curious about visitors, and the dangers are real, mostly travellers will find that the locals are friendly and hospitable.
Visitors to Liberia may import the following goods duty-free: 200 cigarettes/25 cigars/250g of tobacco, one litre of spirits and one litre of wine, 100g perfume and one litre eau de toilette, and gifts valued at US$125.
