Warnings and insurance
The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) provides advice about risks of travel to help British nationals make informed decisions. Find out more about FCDO travel advice.
FCDO advises against all travel to Haiti
Your travel insurance could be invalidated if you travel against FCDO advice. Consular support is also severely limited where FCDO advises against travel.
FCDO advises against all travel to Haiti due to the volatile security situation. There are currently no British consular officials in Haiti and our ability to provide consular assistance is severely limited and cannot be delivered in person in Haiti.
British nationals may get consular services assistance at our diplomatic mission in the Dominican Republic.
If you choose to travel to or stay in Haiti against FCDO advice, try to avoid all crowds and public events, and take appropriate security precautions.
Haiti-Dominican Republic border closure
The border between Haiti and the Dominican Republic is closed. However, the Dominican government announced the reopening of air travel between Haiti and the Dominican Republic on 30 October. The status of the border remains subject to change at short notice. Monitor local media for updates.
