Message for U.S. Citizens – Evacuation Update (April 10, 2020)
Location:  Cameroon
Event:  No Further Charter Flights Currently Planned

At this time, the Department of State and U.S. Embassy Yaounde are not arranging additional charter flights from Cameroon to the United States.  U.S. citizens remaining in Cameroon should be prepared to remain in place for the time being.  U.S. Embassy Yaounde will continue to explore options to facilitate the return home of U.S. citizens, but this will be dependent on circumstances and cannot be counted on for the immediate future.

If you have not as yet contacted us and wish to return to the United States, please email YaoundeACS@state.gov and provide the information requested below.  If you have already provided us with this information, there is no need to contact us to provide it again.  We will contact you as soon as we are able.  All dates should be entered month/day/year.  Thank you.
