Bahamian government issues warning about U.S. travel

In the wake of several police-involved shootings, one nation has taken the significant step of warning its citizens of the potential dangers of visiting the U.S.

The Bahamian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration on Friday issued a travel advisory, citing “the recent tensions in some American cities over shootings of young black males by police officers.”

Citizens of the Bahamas, specifically young males, are warned to “exercise appropriate caution generally” and “extreme caution in affected cities in their interactions with police.”

The advisory urged anyone traveling to the U.S. to cooperate with authorities, listing the cities in which the Bahamas maintains consulates for anyone with issues to report.

While such serious advisories are rare regarding travel to the U.S., foreign governments have issued warnings of various degrees in the past. Several note the increased gun ownership while Germany alerts its citizens that stalking can actually be a crime if done in America.
