Guyana Travel Warning
Issued by US Department of State
Mar 04, 2005
This Travel Warning is being issued to inform American citizens that sanitation conditions continue to be a concern in the areas of Guyana affected by earlier flooding. The authorized departure status for non-emergency personnel and family members of the U.S. Embassy has been lifted, however, as floodwaters have receded. This Travel Warning replaces the Travel Warning issued February 4, 2005.
The authorized departure status for U.S. Embassy personnel and their families has been lifted as of March 1, 2005. Sanitation issues remain a concern in all the affected regions and the water system in Georgetown and affected areas should be considered compromised.
U.S. citizens who travel to or remain in Guyana despite this Travel Warning are strongly advised to register either online at https://travelregistration.state.gov/ibrs, or at the U.S. Embassy located at 100 Young and Duke Streets, telephone 011-592-225-4900 through 54909, fax 011-592-225-8497 web site http://georgetown.usembassy.gov/.
