An upsurge of acts of brigandage and road blockade is found for some time, affecting hitherto untouched territories. If foreigners are not specifically targeted, it is recommended to exercise particular vigilance.

Armed attacks at the exit of the international airport of Port-au-Prince :

Faced with the upsurge of armed attacks, sometimes fatal, between the airport and place of accommodation, mainly for travelers coming to visit their family, it is recalled that it is imperative to organize its reception by relatives or trusted persons, to respect the greatest discretion on the objective and the terms of your travel, to minimize the transport amounts of cash or valuables and especially not to oppose resistance in case of aggression.

These attacks can target in particular the vehicle used at the exit of the airport on the day of arrival as the next day, after spotting operated by gangs.

In case of late arrival, late in the afternoon or evening, you should be particularly vigilant, to prioritize lit roads and avoid the suburbs.

Attacks on National Road #2 (RN2) :
Quite frequently, motorists traveling on the RN2 at the height of Petit-Goâve are subject to ambushes by armed groups and are stripped of their belongings. In such a situation, it is recommended to not offer any resistance..

Aggressions consecutive to a cash withdrawal :
Following the new aggression of a French national at a cash withdrawal, it is recalled that it is important to handle its payment carefully. The cash withdrawals in some bank branches and ATM located in public places should be avoided because of the violent aggression are committed in the course of these withdrawals."
