The U.S. Embassy, Conakry, advises U.S. citizens that the situation in and around Conakry appears calm and that demonstrations thus far appear to be largely celebratory. However, U.S. citizens should use caution when moving about and limit travel to essential trips for food or supplies. Use particular caution when transiting to or from the airport, near the Bombeto circle area, the Rue le Prince corridor between Bombeto and Hamdalaye circles, and the downtown area of Kaloum.
As always, stay vigilant and carry your fully charged cell phone. Remember that demonstrations may appear without warning, and the mood of crowds is always subject to change. Please avoid crowded areas and demonstrations. Should you encounter a large crowd, please turn around.
The curfew is 2200 – 0500 hours, however the Embassy recommends being inside your residence by night fall.·
