US Embassy In Guyana Suspends Routine Visa Services

“On March 14, the Department of State authorized the departure from any diplomatic or consular post in the world of US personnel and family members who have been medically determined to be at higher risk of a poor outcome if exposed to COVID-19. This reduction in staffing has prompted the U.S. Embassy in Guyana to cancel all nonimmigrant visa appointments, reduce immigrant visa appointments, and reduce routine American citizen services appointments in order to comply with Government of Guyana guidance to prevent the spread of coronavirus. The embassy remains open and is prioritizing urgent services, however, access to the premises is limited to those persons with appointment only. As such, the embassy has asked persons to not visit without a prior appointment. Email or telephone +592-225-4900 x4222 before visiting the embassy. Many American Citizen Services can be provided remotely. U.S. citizens experiencing symptoms, or who have reason to believe they have been exposed to COVID-19 are advised for their own health to stay at home, contact the Guyana Ministry of Health at 227-4986/624-3067, and follow their instructions.
