A Good Afternoon to you!
As of now, there is no utility within the standard OpenFOAM ecosystem which converts a mesh from the native OpenFOAM format to a GMSH compatible format.
A long time ago, I had written a utility which converts an OpenFOAM mesh to a format which can be imported into the meshing utility "Netgen".
Theoretically, you can convert an OpenFOAM mesh to Netgen, open it using Netgen, and convert it from Netgen to GMSH....
I am not sure if I will be able to find the utility I wrote, but if you are interested in this relatively longer route, let me know, and I could search for the utility.
Have a great weekend ahead!
