American Embassies and Consulates

If you encounter serious legal, political, health or economic problems, the U.S. embassies and/or consulates can offer limited assistance. They can, for example, provide you with a list of local attorneys and physicians; contact next of kin in the event of an emergency or serious illness; contact friends or relatives on your behalf to request funds or guidance; provide assistance during civil unrest or a natural disaster; and replace a lost or stolen passport. Please understand that they are the primary sources for information about where to obtain advice; however, embassies and consulates don't give advice.
