Comoros Islands Driving Advice and Car Hire Info

Driving in Comoros Islands
Driving  in the Comoros Islands is on the right of the road and you should be able to use the licence of most countries and/or an international driving permit for up to 3 months after that contact the Ministry of Foreign Affairs (telephone: + 269 744 100 or email: for an extension. 670km of the islands 880km of roads are paved but are generally in poor condition, congested, very narrow, and poorly lit at night. An exception is the main road around Grand Comore which is generally okay. You should avoid driving after dark and exercise extreme caution if you have to drive as there are likely to be obstacles and pedestrians in the road and unlit vehicles. Most roads in towns are paved, but many rural roads are not. Whether paved or not, many roads have plenty of potholes and dangerous curves. Roads have no posted speed limits, but road conditions limit speeds to below 30 miles an hour. Driving standards are often erratic and you should drive cautiously and expect the unexpected.

Although I try and keep the information in the site updated as much as possible, in a rapidly moving world, situations can change daily. Therefore please use the site as an approximate guide, and in conjunction with other resources in order to form your view on driving conditions, roads, safety etc.
