There is currently no U.S. diplomatic or consular presence in Guinea-Bissau.
The U.S. Embassy in Bissau suspended operations on June 14, 1998. The U.S. Ambassador to the Republic of Senegal and the Republic of Guinea-Bissau is based in Dakar, Senegal. While U.S. officials from Senegal and elsewhere in the region make periodic visits to Guinea-Bissau, their ability to provide consular services, including emergency assistance, is very limited. In addition to the U.S. Embassy in Dakar, Senegal, the nearest U.S. embassies to Guinea-Bissau are located in Banjul, The Gambia and Conakry, Guinea.
