U.S. Embassy to remain open

The U.S. Embassy in Nassau will remain opened despite a two week nationwide curfew and suspension of business operations, an embassy official told The Nassau Guardian.

It said the move was a preventive measure to help control the spread of the virus.

If members of the traveling public have an urgent matter and need to travel immediately, they should follow the guidance provided at, by phone at +1-242-603-1290 or +1-703-831-3448, or via email to to request an emergency appointment,” the ministry in said.

Today, an embassy said, “We continue to work around the clock to keep U.S. citizens and Bahamians informed as to what is going on. We’re working closely to combat the spread of COVID-19 in The Bahamas.”
