Nonimmigrant Visas

As of March 17, the United States Embassy in The Gambia is suspending routine nonimmigrant visa operations. We will resume routine visa services as soon as possible but are unable to provide a specific date at this time.

The Consular section of the Embassy provides regular U.S. citizen services and conducts visa interviews on an appointment basis during normal Embassy hours. Those needing emergency services are accommodated without an appointment.

Visitors for U.S. citizen services may use the front gate on Kairaba Avenue. Visitors for visa interviews are asked the come to the non-immigrant visa waiting room via the back gate. For further information please contact: 220- 4392856 Ext.1341
