The National Olympic Committee of Guinea-Bissau was formed on 12 April 1995 and was given official recognition by the International Olympic Committee (IOC) in June 1995 at the 104th IOC session in Budapest. The nation made its Olympic début at the 1996 Olympic Games in Atlanta, and also competed in 2000, 2004, 2008, 2012, and 2016. Guinea-Bissau has not competed at the Olympic Winter Games.
