And I’m pretty sure you have to go through Dakar to get the visa. Senegal does a lot of immigrant visas for other countries like Guinea and The Gambia.

That's not the determining factor, actually. Some embassies/consulates don't handle immigrant (and K-1) visas.

 

But it does look like the one there does do it: https://gm.usembassy.gov/visas/immigrant-visas/

In 7 years on this website, it's the first time I've seen that flag. So likely it's just few because few people went that route.

Yea. It's a small country so I'm not surprised. It would be nice to know what to expect but I guess I'll have to be patient.
