What Can U.S. Embassies Do for You?

By Kristen Pope, October 26, 2015

Don’t count on Uncle Sam to do too much if a problem arises overseas, but embassies can help in some regards.

Evacuation: In extreme situations, the United States may arrange for chartered transportation to a neighboring region. Usually, you must find commercial flights out.

Medical Emergency: Embassies help you find a doctor or hospital, contact your loved ones and transfer money to pay for your care.

Arrest: They can help find an English-speaking lawyer, contact loved ones, get medical care or see a clergy member. However, they can’t post bail, provide legal advice or representation, or translate for you.

Victim of Crime: Embassies can help you access local police and medical systems, as well as contact your family members in the U.S., but they don’t offer legal assistance.
