Canada’s travel advisory: exercise high degree of caution in Jamaica

Published on : Friday, January 18, 2019

After a state of emergency was declared in Jamaica, the Government of Canada has issued travel advisory for ‘high degree of caution’. The state of emergency is in effect in the parish of St. James, which includes the popular capital city, Montego Bay.



The Government of Jamaica declared the state of emergency to counter criminal activity in the area. Canadians are warned to exercise a ‘high degree of caution’ in the country due to high levels of violent crime.




A ‘high degree of caution’ is issued when there, ‘are identifiable safety and security concerns or the safety and security situation could change with little notice.’




Canadians in Jamaica are supposed to monitor local media and follow the instructions of local authorities. They should avoid walking alone during the day, and visiting beaches and isolated areas at night. They need to maintain a high level of personal security awareness at all times, particularly at night and not use buses at night. Canadians are advised not to resist if you are a victim of crime, as resistance may provoke the use of violence.




Canadian tourists should not flaunt wealth as petty crimes, such as pick-pocketing and bag snatching, is also common in tourist areas.
