How We Can Help

The American Citizen Services Unit at the U.S. Embassy in Islamabad can assist when a U.S. citizen in Pakistan is arrested, missing, is a victim of violent crime, becomes ill or dies, or when there is otherwise a need for immediate help. We can provide information on local resources and can contact family members in the United States, so that they can make necessary decisions and provide financial and other support.

Please note that we can only replace lost and stolen passports during normal office hours.
