How to get to the US Embassy Barbados  

The U.S Embassy, Barbados recently moved from Bridgetown to a new location in Wildey.  It's a slightly less convenient location than the previous location in the Capital of Barbados, but it's still easy enough to get there. 

It's a good idea to know how to reach them in the event of a lost passport or other mishap.  Here’s the address:

American Embassy
Wildey Business Park
St. Michael BB 14006
Barbados, W.I.

To get there  you could take a taxi or a minivan from the River Minibus Stand in Bridgetown.  If you have a car (click for tips for driving in Barbados) you can reach there by taking the ABC highway towards the Wildey roundabout.
