Ongoing political tensions in Haiti

The safety and security situation in Haiti is unstable. Presidential run-off elections have been postponed indefinitely in Haiti due to violent protests and fraud allegations after the parliamentary elections in October 2015. There have been reports of ongoing planned and spontaneous political protests, street violence, and excessive use of force by police.

Advice For Travellers

Travellers to Haiti should be aware of the potential for violent planned and unplanned protests. Avoid all areas of large public gatherings of people or any demonstration. Leave an area if tension begins to build between groups. Even peaceful situations can quickly and unexpectedly escalate into violent confrontations. Have alternate travel routes planned since demonstrators sometimes block roads.
