Deteriorating Security Environment

Jun 12, 2021

On 10 June 2021, the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince issued a Security Alert regarding the deteriorating security environment in Port-au-Prince, which reads in part as follows: “Due to a recent dramatic increase in violence, kidnapping, and gang activity in the neighborhoods of Laboule 12, Martissant, Cite Soleil, Fontamara, Bas-Delmas, Toussaint Brave, and Bel Air, the U.S. Embassy will continue to restrict non-official travel of its direct-hire U.S. citizen staff from these areas. Direct-hire U.S. citizen staff have been directed to fly when travelling South in order to avoid said areas. Please avoid unnecessary travel to these neighborhoods and use extreme caution if you must transit through them. Night-time travel for U.S. citizen direct-hire staff is currently restricted to the Tabarre area. Additionally, staff have been reminded of the Government of Haiti’s country-wide curfew from 10:00 p.m. to 5:00 a.m., due to COVID-19.”
