Not all parts of the Democratic Republic of Congo are safe. Before traveling to the DRC, you need to ensure that you are traveling to a safe region. The major attraction to Congo is primate tourism. People who want to have an encounter with mountain gorillas should visit the Virunga Massif.
Canada has a relationship with Congo in terms of development and humanitarian assistance but there is currently no trade agreement between the countries.
Your provincial plan will not be adequate outside Canada. So, you need to get a Congo travel insurance policy or private medical coverage to cover you against any form of medical emergency, accident or hospitalization abroad.
