The U.S. Embassy in Bridgetown offers briefings at the embassy for American groups of 10-25 people visiting Barbados. Groups of people larger than 25 are accommodated, as staffing allows, at public venues such as the group’s hotel. We place a high value on informing the U.S. public about the policies and programs we implement in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean. Our briefings typically consist of general information about what the Embassy does, country background, and U.S. foreign policy in Barbados and the Eastern Caribbean. The Embassy representatives who offer the briefings are typically from the Consular Section, the Political/ Economic Section, or USAID.
Please note that the embassy is a busy federal workplace, and briefings are subject to staff availability. Requests must be submitted at least 20 business days before the requested visit date, and include the last name, first name, passport number, and DOB for all group members prior to the briefing. All electronic devices (cell phones, cameras, etc.) will need to be left with the guard desk at the embassy entrance.
