Safety and Security

Do not travel.

We now advise all not to travel overseas at this time, due to the health risks from the COVID-19 pandemic and the significant disruptions to global travel. This includes to Guinea. If you’re already overseas and wish to return to Australia, we recommend you do so as soon as possible by commercial means. The Australian High Commission in Accra currently has very limited capacity to provide consular assistance in West Africa, except in Ghana. This will likely be reduced further as COVID-19 develops. We now advise you to: Do not travel to Guinea.
