The Bahamian Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Immigration has issued a Travel Advisory urging its citizens to exercise “appropriate caution” when travelling to the United States.

The advisory was posted today on the Ministry’s Facebook page.

The Bahamas says it has taken note of the recent tensions in some US cities over the shootings of young black males by police officers.

It’s urging young Bahamian males not to be confrontational in their interactions with US police personnel.

Bahamian nationals are also being urged not to get involved in political or other demonstrations under any circumstances.

They are also being asked to avoid crowds and pay attention to the public notices and news announcements in the cities that they are visiting.
