US Embassy Registration

About Registering with a US Embassy

The US State Department strongly encourages American citizens planning international travel to register with the US Embassy(s) in the countries they plan to visit. This makes it possible for the US Embassy or Consulate to contact a traveler if necessary, whether because of a family emergency in the United States or because of a crisis in the country where the traveler is visiting.

Embassy Registration allows the U.S. government official to:

  • Notify you in case of any life threatening situation in the foreign country or evacuation of U.S. citizens.
  • Contact your family in the U.S. in case of emergency.
  • Contact you if there is an emergency at home or inform the authorized person from your registration how to contact you.
  • Expedite the application of renewing or replacing your U.S. passport, if your passport is stolen or lost.

Who Can Register

All US citizens who will be traveling or residing abroad can register. It is a good idea to register each traveler before departing on any international trip.
