About Landscape

ETS Security Overview Guyana

The crime rate in Guyana is high due to criminal activities being commonplace and the low capability of the police to deal with such issues. Muggings, violent robberies, and petty crime happen frequently as are attacks against businesses. Crime is prevalent in the areas of Georgetown such as Albouystown and Tiger Bay, Sophia, and all of south Georgetown. A further concern is that a considerable proportion of violent crime has been linked to the drug trade in Guyana. The geographic location lends itself as a transit point for Colombian cocaine destined for Europe, the Caribbean, and North America

Road travel is considered to be a high risk, especially at night due to highway robbery perpetrated by gangs. It is recommended that you book your ground transportation before you arrive in Guyana to ensure you are safely collected and delivered to your destination. Road conditions are poor and the general driving standard is also poor which unfortunately leads to frequent accidents

Guyana is subject to natural disasters especially flooding and landslides caused by tropical storms. This can cause widespread disruption, travel delays and damage to infrastructure.

As part of our service all clients have free access to our ExploreSecure® eLearning Travel Security training pre-departure
