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.
In welfare and whereabouts cases, the Consular Section tries to obtain all pertinent data available about the individuals and attempts to locate the individuals, determine their welfare, pass on any urgent messages and, consistent with the Privacy Act, report back the results of their search efforts.
