Visa Requirements for US Passport Holders – Guinea Bissau (Republic of Guinea-Bissau)

A valid US passport, visa, and proof of onward/return ticket are required for American visitors to enter Guinea-Bissau.  Since January 2007, the Bissau-Guinean Embassy in Washington, DC, has temporarily stopped operations.  The Embassy of Guinea-Bissau also does not have a website.  It is not easy to obtain the required visa for entry into Guinea-Bissau, due to lack of consular representation in the United States.  Since most flights destined for Guinea-Bissau must transit through Dakar, Senegal, or Lisbon, Portugal, most visitors are able to apply for visas at the Bissau-Guinean embassies in those countries.  It is possible to obtain a visa upon arrival in Bissau if arrangements are made in advance but there are no clear instructions for how to make those arrangements.
