On 2 April 2024, Panamanian government officials announced a temporary closing of Panama’s embassy in Port-au-Prince due to continued intense levels of gang violence and unrest. Until further notice, the Panamanian embassy — which has been shut down since 29 March — will only provide consular service to its nationals residing in Haiti. Brazil, Canada and France have also temporarily closed their embassies in Port-au-Prince due to the ongoing gang violence.
