FBI Issues Travel Warning For Haiti Amid Crime Surge

A recent surge in violence and the abduction of an American couple in Haiti last month is causing concern for American government officials. The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) has issued a travel warning for American citizens to avoid travel to the country.

“While we understand that there are strong ties between Haiti and South Florida, before traveling there one should consider the trauma and financial costs of being kidnapped not only to themselves but to their family and friends as well,” FBI Supervisory Special Agent Liz Santamaria said this week, as reported by the Miami Herald.

The situation in Haiti has reached a critical point as violence and lawlessness continue to escalate. The FBI’s Miami field office has reported a 300% increase in kidnappings for the first three months of 2023, compared to the same period in 2022.
