Event: The Department of State is organizing one additional repatriation flight for U.S. citizens to the United States. The flight could possibly depart Niamey, Niger early next week to Washington, DC. Confirm your interest in this flight by replying to this message and sending a copy of your passport to NiameyACS@state.gov by 5 pm tomorrow, April 22, 2020.
Private U.S. citizens seeking to depart are required to sign a promissory note and will be billed at a later date by the Department of State in Washington, DC. The U.S. Embassy is awaiting many details about this flight, including its confirmation, cost per seat, schedule, and the number of seats available.
We do not anticipate arranging any additional repatriation flights after this one. U.S. citizens and lawful permanent residents who are not interested in immediate return to the United States should be prepared to remain in Niger until quarantine measures are lifted and regular commercial international travel is possible.
Please reply to this e-mail confirming that you would like to be considered for the flight next week. If you have already submitted your information to NiameyACS@state.gov, simply confirm that you would like to be on this possible flight before 5 pm on Wednesday, April 22, 2020. If you have not done so, please send the following information for each traveler:

- Date of birth
- Passport number
- Date of passport issuance and expiration
- Email address and contact phone number
- Current location
- Desired onward destination in the U.S.
- Special circumstances (including any medical or special assistance needs)
If you have previously applied for a U.S. passport or citizenship service, you should expect significant delays receiving your passport and your citizenship evidence documents. In an emergency, our embassy can assist with an emergency passport for an adult or a minor.
