US GOVERNMENT URGES CITIZENS TO AVOID TRAVELLING TO JAMAICA

US Travel Advisories


October 14, 2022 | By Colin O. Jarrett |

Jamaica is under the microscope as the US government has issued a level-3 travel advisory, urging its citizens to avoid travelling to Jamaica due to the island’s high level of crime.

Months after it issued a travel advisory warning Americans to reconsider travel to Jamaica, the US Department of State last week outlined a list of places to avoid in the country.

They are Clarendon, Hanover, Kingston and St Andrew and the city of Montego Bay.  Several sections of the Corporate Area are no-go places including Cassava Piece, Downtown Kingston and August Town.

For Clarendon, they warn that only the toll highway should be used.  Other parishes included are St Ann, St Catherine, Westmoreland and the entire parish of St James.

The US encourages its citizens to avoid Steer Town in St Ann as well as Spanish Town and Central Village in St Catherine.

For St James, Cambridge should be avoided as well as Spring Mount and Johns Hall as well as Russia and Whitehouse in Westmoreland.

The US State Department also informed that violent crimes, such as home invasions, armed robberies, sexual assaults and homicides are common in Jamaica.
