 Help in an Emergency

In the event that your family needs to reach you while you are traveling abroad because of an emergency at home or because they are worried about your welfare, they should call the State Department’s Citizens Emergency Center at 1-888-407-4747 (from the U.S. and Canada) or +1-202-501-4444 (from other countries). The State Department will relay the message to consular officers in the country in which you are traveling. Consular officers will try to locate you, pass on urgent messages, and, consistent with the Privacy Act, report back to your family.
