Summary

Anguilla was severely impacted by Hurricane Irma on 6 September 2017, but the process of recovery is progressing well. All services have now resumed: the power network is fully-functioning, the island’s airport and port are operational and hotels and restaurants are back open for business.

The hurricane season normally runs from June to November. You should monitor local and international weather updates from the US National Hurricane Centre and follow the advice of local authorities, including any evacuation orders. See Natural Disasters.

Anguilla is a British Overseas Territory. There is therefore no formal British diplomatic or consular representation. The local authorities deal with all requests for emergency assistance. See Emergency assistance.

UK health authorities have classified Anguilla as having a risk of Zika virus transmission. For more information and advice, visit the website of the National Travel Health Network and Centre

Most visits to Anguilla are trouble-free. However, cases of robbery and other crimes do occur. See Crime.

Although there’s no recent history of terrorism in Anguilla, attacks cannot be ruled out. See Terrorism.
