The Department of State has issued this Travel Warning to inform U.S. citizens traveling to or living in Haiti about the security
situation in Haiti. This replaces the Travel Warning dated January 20, 2011 to consolidate and update information regarding

to travel in country without such support structures in place. U.S.
