There are 438 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and four deaths reported in Guinea since March 12, 2020. 

The U.S. government does not anticipate arranging additional repatriation flights from Guinea to the United States at this time. U.S. citizens who wish to depart Guinea should do so as soon as a commercial option is available or be prepared to remain abroad for an indefinite period.  All information we develop on any commercial options will be disseminated via STEP 

The Gbessia International Airport in Conakry is closed to commercial traffic, and there no current options for air travel into or out of Guinea.  Visit our website at https://gn.usembassy.gov/u-s-citizen-services/ for additional information on these new measures.  

The government of Guinea has implemented enhanced screening and quarantine measures to reduce the spread of COVID-19 and declared a Health State of Emergency through May 15, 2020.
