National warning: This advisory covers the whole country.

Brief summary:
Reissued with updates to civil unrest information and to add risk indicators for fuel shortages impacting local infrastructure, crime, and health. Reconsider travel to Guinea due to fuel shortages impacting local infrastructure, civil unrest, and health and exercise increased caution in Guinea due to crime. A catastrophic explosion at Guinea’s primary fuel depot on December 18 has led to widespread fuel shortages and rising costs of basic goods and services.  Rising transportation costs have decreased access to basic commodities and health services and contributed to a heightened risk of crime.  Due to injuries related to the fuel depot incident, local hospital resources are extremely strained. The U.S. government has a limited ability to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens outside of Conakry, as U.S. government employee travel is restricted due to resources and security concerns.  U.S. government employees may travel only during daylight hours and are prohibited from walking alone outside of designated areas and times. Demonstrations occur frequently throughout the country and are often sporadic and unplanned, making it difficult to predict the size, route, level of violence, or congestion that may occur.  Any demonstration may turn violent, resulting in injuries and even fatalities.  Demonstrators may attack vehicles that attempt to pass through or around the protests, resulting in serious injuries and vehicular damage. Criminals are known to take advantage of the resulting traffic congestion to rob drivers, passengers, and pedestrians.  Uniformed security forces may also extort drivers and passengers during these incidents. Read the country information page for additional information about travel to Guinea.

Danger level: 4

Note of the displayed travel advisories
These travel advisories are automatically gathered. We use the RSS Feeds of the corresponding authorities of the single countries. In some cases, we analyse the website itself. Since the information originates from different countries and different countries have different understanding of danger and danger levels. Thus, the information displayed is an automized and normalized representation with no right to completeness and correctness. If a country is not shown, it doesn't necessarily mean it's safe. The information shown is a first indicator. Additional remark: the websites address does not endorse the situation of a 'Reisewarnung' (with its name). Often, it's just formal notifications by other countries. These can be the reason a country reaches scores of aorund 2.0 and still be a generally safe country to visit. Lower risk grades are usually no sign of a immanent threat!
