Guinea's tourism industry is rather limited, as its growth and effectiveness is curtailed by poor infrastructure throughout the country, as well as decades of regional military conflicts.
Consider that there is no permanent U.S. diplomatic or consular presence in the country. The U.S. Embassy in Bissau suspended operations in June 1998, and while officials from the U.S. Embassy in Dakar, Senegal, make periodic visits to Guinea-Bissau, their ability to provide consular services, including emergency assistance, is very limited.
All travelers who plan to visit the country should read the travel warnings shown below.
A more detailed list of travel information for Guinea-Bissau will be posted soon.
