A heightened security presence and localized traffic disruptions are to be expected in the area over the coming hours.
Haiti has faced numerous demonstrations in recent months to call for greater government transparency after several public officials, including President Jovenel Moïse, were implicated in a scandal related to the alleged misuse of PetroCaribe funds. The protests have divided Haitian society and have exacerbated an already-unstable political situation.
Individuals in Port-au-Prince are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, anticipate localized transportation disruptions, and adhere to instructions issued by local authorities.
The security environment in Haiti remains complex. Professional security advice and support should be sought prior to travel.
