Security Message from the U.S. Embassy
As always, visitors to Barbados should be on guard against street crime and petty theft. Visitors should be especially vigilant on the beaches at night. Visitors should try to secure valuables in a hotel safe and take care to always lock and secure hotel room doors and windows. U.S. citizens who are the victims of crimes in Barbados are encouraged to contact the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy, which is located in the Wildey Business Park, Wildey, St. Michael. The telephone number for the Consular Section is (246) 227-4399. The fax number is (246) 431-0179, and the e-mail address for American Citizen Services is BridgetownACS@state.gov. After hours, a duty officer can be reached by dialing the Embassy switchboard at (246) 227-4000.
Americans living or traveling in Barbados are encouraged to register with the U.S. Embassy or Consulate through the State Department's travel registration website, and to review regularly updated Country Specific Information on travel and security within Barbados. Americans without Internet access may register directly with the nearest U.S. Embassy or Consulate. By registering, American citizens make it easier for the Embassy or Consulate to contact them in case of emergency. The website for Embassy Bridgetown is http://barbados.usembassy.gov/ .
