Security Alert – Bahamas

Apr 22, 2022

On 20 April 2022, the U.S. Embassy in Nassau issued a Security Alert regarding an increase in violent crime against tourists on New Providence Island, which reads in part as follows: “The U.S. Embassy in Nassau advises U.S. citizens to exercise vigilance due to an increase in reported violent crime on New Providence Island (Nassau). Over the past month, tourists have reported to the Embassy four armed robberies. These armed robberies occurred both in areas frequented by tourists, as well as on site or in the vicinity of short-term vacation rental properties without private security. In recent months, there has also been an increase in homicides that are primarily gang-related and affecting the local population in areas of Nassau generally not frequented by tourists.”
