Travel Infomation Description

Road Conditions and Safety: Road conditions in Guyana differ significantly than those in the United States. U.S. citizens should exercise caution when driving in Guyana and avoid driving after dark. If an accident occurs, call 911 for the police and 913 for an ambulance. U.S. citizens are reminded that these numbers may not always be operational, that the police may be slow to respond, and an ambulance may not always be available.

For more information about traveling in Guyana, visit the Traffic Division of Guyana's National Police Force website.

Air Travel: Airlines typically operate based on demand and can, therefore, delay, reroute, or cancel flights without notice. U.S. citizens should carry medication, valuables, and perishables in carry on lugguage.

Travel in the Interior: The interior of Guyana is underpoliced, emergency services are generally not available, and there is no cellular phone reception in many places. Travelers visiting the interior should consider bringing their own safety gear, such as life jackets, first aid kits, and communications equipment (e.g., a satellite phone).

Traffic Laws: The use of seatbelts is required by law. There are no laws concerning the use of child car seats. Anyone on a motorcycle must wear a protective helmet. Talking on the cellular telephone while driving without using a hands-free set is illegal.

Public Transportation: U.S. government personnel are prohibited from using mini buses due to several fatal accidents in recent years. While bandits are known to attack taxis, taxis are generally safer to use to get around town and also to/from the airport. U.S. government personnel may use taxis, but are restricted from taking taxis to/from the airport between 11:30 p.m. and dawn. U.S. citizens should use taxis that are connected to major hotels or are painted yellow, which are registered with the Government of Guyana's licensing office.

See our Road Safety page for more information. Visit the website of Guyana?s national tourist office and national authority responsible for road safety.

Aviation Safety Oversight: As there is no direct commercial air service to the United States by carriers registered in Guyana, the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has not assessed the government of Guyana?s Civil Aviation Authority for compliance with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) aviation safety standards. Further information may be found on the FAA?s safety assessment page.

Maritime Travel: Mariners planning travel to the Guyana should check for U.S. maritime advisories and alerts. Information may also be posted to the U.S. Coast Guard homeport website, and the NGA broadcast warnings.
