Canada warns citizens traveling to the Dominican Republic due to crime and border situation

The Canadian government has issued a warning advising its citizens to exercise caution when traveling to the Dominican Republic. The government website on travel and tourism displays a yellow alert sign, stating “Exercise a high level of caution” due to crime and the situation on the border with Haiti.

Regarding crime, the Canadian government notes that there have been reports of violent crimes in the country, particularly in large cities. However, it specifies that most of these incidents are “opportunistic crimes.” Additionally, there are “minor crimes” like theft of purses, wallets, and other valuables that tourists may experience in hotels, beaches, airports, bus stops, public transport, and other locations.

The warning also mentions robberies carried out by individuals on motorcycles or while a vehicle is stopped at a red light. To avoid any safety concerns, the Canadian government provides a list of security recommendations.

The warning about the border with Haiti highlights a “tense” situation between the two countries that may lead to incidents such as armed robberies, including “criminals dressed as police officers.” The warning also cautions that the border crossing points may close without prior notice, and there are no emergency services available near the border.

Canada, the US, France, the UN they all have the same agenda for the Dominican Republic. They want to give our country to the Haitian. They are all behind the Haitian crisis as well.

I was in the Dominican Republic to escape the vax mandate madness that Canada was in, for 9 months, and it would have been for years if my online legal money source hadn’t stopped.

They had but out a warning here in Canada that the Dominican Republic was having major health issues due to not having proper COVID restrictions. Both claims were false. No country should have had any.

Plus Dominicans weren’t thieves in the blatant sense these warnings list, but rather in trying to RIP me off repeatedly by charging me 30%-350% more for goods and services.

That is so true! I’d travel to the Dominican Republic any day over the USA! People are nicer, beaches are better and I have always felt safe in the DR. You just gotta be aware of your surroundings, as you would anywhere else on the planet! Love for the Dominican Republic and the people!
