Advice

⚠️ Travel advice

Reconsider your need to travel

There have been violent protests and road blocks in Port-au-Prince and other cities in Haiti since February 2019. These protests are continuing. There are reports of fuel and food shortages. Remain vigilant, avoid crowds and protests as they may quickly turn violent, monitor local media and follow the advice of local authorities. Limit your movements as much as possible, stock up on essential supplies when safe to do so and regularly review your departure options. Commercial flights remain available. We continue to advise Australians to reconsider your need to travel to Haiti.
