National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Reconsider travel to Haiti due to crime, civil unrest, and kidnapping. Protests, tire burning, and road blockages are frequent and unpredictable. Violent crime, such as armed robbery, is common, and incidents of kidnapping have occurred. Local police may lack the resources to respond effectively to serious criminal incidents, and emergency response, including ambulance service, is limited or non-existent. Travelers are sometimes targeted, followed, and violently attacked and robbed shortly after leaving the Port-au-Prince international airport. The U.S. Embassy requires its personnel to use official transportation to and from the airport, and it takes steps to detect surveillance and deter criminal attacks during these transports. The U.S. government has limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens in some areas of Haiti. The Embassy discourages its personnel from walking in most neighborhoods. Only adult family members over the age of 18 are permitted to accompany U.S. government employees assigned to the U.S. Embassy in Port-au-Prince. U.S. government personnel in Haiti are prohibited from: Visiting establishments after dark without secure, on-site parking; Using any kind of public transportation or taxis; Visiting banks and using ATMs; Driving outside of Port-au-Prince at night; Traveling anywhere between 1:00 a.m. and 5:00 a.m.; and Visiting certain parts of the city at any time without prior approval and special security measures in place.
