The Embassy of the United States in Georgetown is the diplomatic mission of the United States of America in Guyana. The United States has expressed a strong interest in partnering with Guyana to leverage its potential in areas such as agriculture, natural resources, as well as significant oil and gas reserves.[1]


The territory that would become Guyana was initially occupied by Dutch colonies, including Essequibo, Demerara and Berbice. These colonies were ceded to Great Britain at the Congress of Vienna and were consolidated to form British Guyana in 1831. The United States recognized Guyana's independence from the United Kingdom on May 26, 1966. Diplomatic relations were formally established on the same day with Delmar R. Carlson assuming the position of Chargé d'Affaires ad interim.[2]

Throughout the late 1980s, Guyana shifted from state socialism and one-party control towards a market economy and embracing greater freedoms, which included freedom of the press and assembly. The U.S. administers multi-million dollar programs focusing on education, prevention, and treatment of HIV/AIDS in Guyana. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) opened an office at the U.S. Embassy in an effort to combat the spread of HIV/AIDS in 2002.[3] In 2007, a former member of Guyana's parliament and a naturalized U.S. citizen from Guyana were among four people convicted of participating in a failed plot to firebomb John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York City.[4] In 2022, the U.S. donated three oxygen generators to the country.[5]
