Messages for U.S. Citizens

Messages are sent to Americans and contain safety or travel information for citizens abroad.  Messages are issued from the Department of State and are communicated to overseas citizens through Embassies and Consulates.  Messages may be issued worldwide, regionally, or just in one specific country.

What is a Warden?

Wardens are private U.S. citizens in The Gambia that help the Embassy communicate warden messages quickly when needed, usually by contacting other Americans in their area or organization.  Contact the Consular Office if you are interested in volunteering your services as a Warden.  We greatly appreciate the support from our Wardens, and it is a very important role to play!

Who receives Messages?

The Consular Office attempts to contact all enrolled U.S. citizens when  Messages are issued.  If you would like to receive these messages, please enroll your stay in The Gambia by visiting the U.S. Embassy with your passport, or by going online.  Click here to enroll Online.  Messages affecting The Gambia are also posted on this website.
