Security Situation - February 2019

Several government travel advisories are warning travelers against travel to Haiti due to the deteriorating security situation, and have advised their citizens who may be in the country to depart Haiti immediately. Ignoring government advice by traveling to Haiti may mean you may not be covered by travel insurance.

Violent protests have occurred in the capital, Port Au Haiti, and other towns since February 7 as locals demand the resignation of the country's president and prime minister. Violent crime such as armed robbery has escalated and there are roadblocks in place across the country.

Medical and consular services may be limited or nonexistent. The main hospital in Port Au Prince is experiencing difficulties receiving supplies and staffing is limited due to the ongoing violence.
