Emergency Contact Information for U.S. Citizens

Emergency Assistance

In case of emergencies involving the death, injury, welfare, or arrest of an American citizen in The Bahamas or the Turks and Caicos Islands, please call (242) 322-1181.  The American Citizen Services (ACS) Section can also be contacted directly via email at acsnassau@state.gov. In the event the Embassy’s main emergency line is unreachable, please contact the backup number at (242) 376-4028.

The American Citizen Services Unit stands ready to help American citizens in The Bahamas or the Turks and Caicos Islands — and their loved ones – in emergency situations.  American citizens overseas, of course, remain subject to the laws of the country they are in.  The links below give an overview of consular assistance available and other useful information:
