  • Ethnic Somalis for the most part blend in well with Yemeni society, as they share centuries of close religious, commercial and social ties.

Yemen-Somalia ties
  • Following the outbreak of the civil war in Somalia, Yemen unconditionally opened its borders to Somali asylum seekers. The World Refugee Survey 2008, published by the U.S. Committee for Refugees and Immigrants, estimates that 110,600 Somali refugees lived in Yemen in 2007, which is a fraction of the estimated 700,000-strong Somali nationals already living and working in Yemen.

  • There are also many Somalis who have received Yemeni citizenship due to marriage with Yemenis as well as through service to the nation over the years.
  • In addition, Yemen and Somalia have a long history of trade and inter-action, with many of Somalia's Sultans, such as Yusuf Ali Kenadid and Gerad Ali Dable, often being exiled to and recruiting troops from Yemen's Hadhramaut region.
