The hurricane season in the Caribbean normally runs from June to November. You should monitor local and international weather updates from the US National Hurricane Center and follow the advice of local authorities, including any evacuation orders. See Natural disasters.

Hurricane Maria passed over Dominica on 19 September 2017, causing widespread damage to communications, buildings and infrastructure. Life in Dominica continues to return to a state of normality. Mains water has been restored to 85% of the population, and bottled water and communal tanks are available. Electricity has been restored to Roseau and Portsmouth, and for all essential services.

Local communications and access are improving, and public and private sector businesses have reopened. All main roads in Dominica have been cleared, although heightened care is needed when navigating some roads affected by the hurricane.

Commercial flights are operating from the airport and ferry options are also available. While many hotels have reopened, and the number of serviceable rooms continues to increase, demand remains high, so if you’re considering travelling to Dominica, you should make firm arrangements for accommodation in advance.

If you’re in Dominica, you should continue to exercise caution and follow the advice of the local authorities.

There is no British High Commission in Dominica. If you need consular assistance, contact the British High Commission in Barbados.

UK health authorities have classified Dominica as having a risk of Zika virus transmission. For more information and advice, visit the website of the National Travel Health Network and Centre website.

Most visits to Dominica are trouble-free but incidents of crime do occur. See Crime

Although there’s no recent history of terrorism in Dominica, attacks can’t be ruled out. See Terrorism

If you’re abroad and you need emergency help from the UK government, contact the nearest British embassy, consulate or high commission.

Take out comprehensive travel and medical insurance before you travel.
