Health Alert – U.S. Embassy Port-Au-Prince (March 26, 2020)
The U.S. Embassy in Haiti continues to work closely with the State Department Repatriation Task Force to assist U.S. citizens who wish to depart Haiti, while observing the Haitian Government’s measures to contain the spread of COVID-19.
American citizens who wish to return to the United States should plan to do so immediately. At present, commercial and direct charter airlines are authorized to operate flights to the United States from Haiti only until Monday, March 30. The U.S. Embassy cannot guarantee that flights to the United States will continue to be available beyond that date. U.S. citizens who hold tickets for flights to the United States after March 30 should immediately contact the issuing airline to verify the status of their flight. U.S. citizens who do not return to the United States while commercial or commercially available charter flights are available may be forced to remain outside of the United States for an indefinite period.
As always, the U.S. Embassy urges U.S. citizens to enroll at STEP.state.gov to receive emergency updates from the Embassy and should monitor the Embassy website and Twitter feed for up-to-date information.
