Guinea Travel Advice

๐Ÿ›ก๏ธ Travel safety

Exercise a high degree of caution
Weโ€™ve reviewed our advice for Guinea. We havenโ€™t changed the level of our advice, exercise a high degree of caution. Higher levels apply in some areas. Recent protests in Conakry and other towns in Guinea have turned violent, resulting in several deaths and injuries. There is potential for further protests to take place. There are currently heightened political and social tensions, including in the capital Conakry, with the potential for the situation to deteriorate without warning. Avoid protests and public gatherings and remain vigilant. Follow the advice of local authorities and monitor local media for updates.
