The following information is currently posted on the U.S. Department of State website:
Due to the deterioration of the security situation in Liberia, the U.S. Embassy in Monrovia has had to sharply reduce visa services to Liberian citizens. This includes the processing of orphan petitions and visas for adopted children.
The Department of State has ordered the departure of all non-emergency personnel from the U.S. Embassy in Monrovia and has issued a traveling warning advising U.S. citizens against travel to Liberia at this time.
