Barbados has a moderately developed economy. Facilities for tourism are widely available. The capital is Bridgetown. The U.S. Embassy in Barbados also has responsibility for U.S. citizens in the independent countries of Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, St. Kitts and Nevis, St. Lucia, St. Vincent and The Grenadines, as well as the British dependent territories of Anguilla, British Virgin Islands and Montserrat, and several French islands (Martinique, Guadeloupe, and their dependencies).

U.S. citizens may enter Barbados for up to 28 days without a valid passport, but must carry original documentation proving U.S. citizenship (i.e. valid or expired U.S. passport, certified U.S. birth certificate, or Consular Report of Birth, or Certificate of Naturalization, or Certificate of Citizenship), and a photo identification and an onward or return ticket. U.S. citizen visitors who enter Barbados without these items, even if admitted by immigration authorities, may encounter difficulties in boarding flights for return to the United States. For further information, travelers may contact the Embassy of Barbados, 2144 Wyoming Avenue, N.W., Washington, D.C. 20008, telephone (202) 939-9200, Internet e-mail: barbados@oas.org; or the consulates of Barbados in Los Angeles, Miami or New York.

Crime in Bridgetown is characterized by petty theft and street crime, but the incidence of violent crime appears to be on the rise. Valuables left in plain sight inside vehicles make tempting targets for criminals. Automobile theft also occurs with some frequency.

Medical care is generally good. Serious medical problems requiring hospitalization and/or medical evacuation to the United States can cost thousands of dollars or more. Doctors and hospitals often expect immediate cash payment for health services, and U.S. medical insurance is not always valid outside the United States. U.S. Medicare and Medicaid programs do not provide payment for medical services outside the United States.

Contributed By RealAdventures Support

Uninsured travelers who require medical care overseas may face extreme difficulties. Please check with your own insurance company to confirm whether your policy applies overseas, including provision for medical evacuation. Please ascertain whether payment will be made to the overseas hospital or doctor or whether you will be reimbursed later for expenses. Some insurance policies also include coverage for psychiatric treatment and for disposition of remains in the event of death. Useful information on medical emergencies abroad, including overseas insurance programs, is provided in the Department of State’s Bureau of Consular Affairs brochure Medical Information for Americans Traveling Abroad, available via the Bureau of Consular Affairs home page or autofax: (202) 647-3000.

While in a foreign country, U.S. citizens may encounter road conditions that differ significantly from those in the United States. The information below concerning Barbados is provided for general reference only, and may not be totally accurate in a particular location or circumstance. Driving in Barbados is on the left-hand side of the road.

Safety of Public Transportation: Good
Urban Road Conditions/Maintenance: Fair
Rural Road Conditions/Maintenance: Fair
Availability of Roadside Assistance: Fair

Taxis and buses are generally safe. Buses and vans are often crowded and tend to travel at high rates of speed. Night driving should be done with much caution because of narrow roads with no shoulders and because of pedestrian/bicycle traffic.

For specific information concerning Barbados driver's permits, vehicle inspection, road tax and mandatory insurance, please contact the Barbados National Tourist Organization offices in New York at 1 (800) 221-9831 or via the Internet at e-mail address: gcny@barbados.org.

While in a foreign country, a U.S. citizen is subject to that country's laws and regulations, which sometimes differ significantly from those in the United States and may not afford the protections available to the individual under U.S. law. Penalties for breaking the law can be more severe than in the United States for similar offenses. Persons violating Barbados laws, even unknowingly, may be expelled, arrested or imprisoned. Penalties for possession, use, or trafficking in illegal drugs in Barbados are strict, and convicted offenders can expect jail sentences and heavy fines.
