Message for U.S. Citizens: Attention to U.S. citizens still seeking flights to the U.S.

April 4, 2020

The U.S. Embassy continues to monitor the current situation in Guyana.  We are aware of the hardship border closures have created for U.S. citizens who need to return to the United States. We have been exploring all options to address the current travel disruptions since Guyana closed its airspace to commercial flights on March 18 and have already arranged four relief flights to transport Americans and their family members home.  However we will not be able to offer this service indefinitely.  If you are a U.S. citizen still interested in departing Guyana to travel to the United States- we strongly encourage you to complete this online form (copy hyperlink and open in Chrome browser).

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

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

You can reach us at the email box: to request assistance with emergency passports or at if you have special financial concerns with the cost of repatriation.
