Please note: The Department of State assumes no responsibility or liability for the professional ability or reputation of, or the quality of services provided by, the entities or individuals whose names appear on the following lists. Inclusion on this list is in no way an endorsement by the Department or the U.S. government. Names are listed alphabetically, and the order in which they appear has no other significance. The information on the list is provided directly by the local service providers; the Department is not in a position to vouch for such information.
All travelers should familiarize themselves with situations in their country of destination that may affect their health, and ensure they have valid health and medical evacuation insurance. Also see the Medical Care section below. For information about the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare), please see the Federal Benefits section below.
If you get sick or hurt you can contact the consular office for a list of medical resources. If your condition is serious, a consul will help you find medical assistance and, at your request, will contact family and friends. We recommend that all U.S. citizens travel with valid health and medical evacuation insurance as providers can often not provide service without proof of insurance.
