In light of the recent police-involved shootings, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration has issued a travel advisory for Bahamians traveling to the U.S.
In a statement, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration said:
"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."
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration also warns against getting involved in political demonstrations and advises holiday travelers to allow consular offices for the Bahamas to moderate any issues.
Locations for the Bahamas' consular offices can be found on the Ministry’s website.
