Attention U.S. Citizens seeking Additional Flights to the United States

Event: The U.S. Embassy in Guyana requests any U.S. citizen interested in additional humanitarian flights to the United States to complete this online form (copy hyperlink and open in Chrome browser). If you are part of a group, please fill out a separate form for each individual traveler.

The U.S. Embassy in Guyana continues to work with commercial airlines to organize humanitarian flights for U.S. citizens who wish to depart Georgetown to Miami.  As the commercial carrier must fly to Guyana empty with extra crew, the cost of this one-way flight is often higher than pre-COVID-19 pricing for this route.  Any departing flight requires special authorization from the Government of Guyana due to the closure of Guyana’s airspace from March 18 to April 1.  The U.S. Embassy continues to request special authorization from the government for such flights.

The Embassy will post updated information through this travel alert system and on the U.S. Embassy Facebook page, as soon as we have further information.

If you encounter issues completing the online form, you can also send an email to with the subject line “Return Travel to the United States.” If emailing, please include passport information for each U.S. citizen or U.S. legal permanent resident guardian accompanying minor children in your family or group.

You may also reach us at the email box: to request assistance with emergency passports or at if you have special concerns with repatriation.

The U.S. Embassy in Guyana regularly updates the COVID-19 country specific information sheet on our website -you can find here.
