Bahamas Issues Travel Advisory For USA

July 9, 2016

The Bahamas has issued a travel advisory for its citizens who plan to travel to the US, citing the “recent tensions in some American cities”.

The statement from the Bahamas Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration said, “The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration has taken a note of the recent tensions in some American cities over shootings of young black males by police officers.

“At the commencement of the Independence holiday weekend, many Bahamians will no doubt use the opportunity to travel, in particular to destinations in the United States.

“We wish to advise all Bahamians traveling to the US but especially to the affected cities to exercise appropriate caution generally. In particular young males are asked to exercise extreme caution in affected cities in their interactions with the police. Do not be confrontational and cooperate.

“If there is any issue please allow consular offices for The Bahamas to deal with the issues. Do not get involved in political or other demonstrations under any circumstances and avoid crowds.”

    The Bahamas has issued a travel advisory. This must have the US shaking in their boots. If Bermuda does the same things will really be serious. Theyb will assign protection to every Bermudian visiting.

      It’s called responsible governance. The purpose is to advise their citizens, not send a message to the US government.
