bahamas issue travel advisory to U.S

Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration Issues Travel Advisory for Bahamians traveling to United States of America

For Immediate Release

8 July 2016

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 consular offices in New York, Washington, Miami and Atlanta and honorary consuls in Los Angeles, Denver, Chicago and Houston.

Their addresses are on the Ministry’s website –

Pay attention to the public notices and news announcements in the city that you are visiting.

Be safe, enjoy the holiday weekend and be sensible.

the U.S. is a war zone

Umekuja na good news, kiti sikupi

In Kenya they warn against visiting areas in North Coast and North Eastern where al shabab is active, in the US black males should keep away from areas where there are white cops, which is essentially everywhere.

I like their guts though am sure the US will dismiss it as of no consequence.

Even the UAE and Bahrain issued travel advisories to their citizens

[B]DUBAI, United Arab Emirates — Two Mideast countries are warning citizens traveling in the United States to be careful around protests over police shootings.

A “special alert” issued by the United Arab Emirates Embassy to Washington on Saturday urged citizens to stay away from demonstrations in U.S. cities.

State news agency WAM said the warning followed a protest by supporters of the “Black Lives Matter” movement in Washington on Friday.

The island kingdom of Bahrain issued its own advisory on Twitter, telling nationals to be “cautious of protests or crowded area[/B]s.”

African nations should do the same.
