On 19 September 2022, the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince issued a Security Alert, which reads in part as follows: “Given the continuing protests in Haiti, the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince reminds U.S. citizens that Haiti has the highest Travel Advisory level (Level 4: DO NOT TRAVEL) for kidnapping, crime, and civil unrest. The U.S. government is extremely limited in its ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in Haiti. Local police generally lack the resources to respond effectively to requests for assistance. U.S. citizens should carefully consider the risks of traveling to (or remaining in) Haiti in light of the deteriorating security situation and infrastructure challenges. These issues may limit access to essential services in an emergency, including access to banks, money transfers, urgent medical care, internet and telecommunications, and public and private transportation options.”
