The Embassy of the United States of America in Banjul has issued a notice that it has closed routine Non-Immigrant Visas (NIV) and American Citizens Services (ACS) appointments, until further notice. The brief statement posted on the embassy’s webpage did not state explicitly the reason behind the closure. The notice only  hinted that  it is due to unforeseen circumstances. The general Gambian public is therefore left to speculate reasons of closure with some citing the uneven political situation in the Gambia  and others pointing at technical issues. We hereby reproduce the U.S Embassy notice :

Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Consular Section of the U.S. Embassy is currently closed to routine Non-Immigrant Visas (NIV) and American Citizens Services (ACS) appointments, until further notice.  We are working to resolve the situation as quickly as possible, and we hope to re-open appointments sometime around March 20, 2016 (though we cannot guarantee that date).  If your need for services is immediate, please schedule an appointment with the U.S. Embassy in Dakar.  Please note that the wait times for some appointments in Dakar exceed the amount of time that we expect to be closed.  We appreciate your patience, and sincerely apologize for any inconvenience.
