Emergency Assistance

If you are an American citizen with an after hours emergency, please call (595-21) 213-715 and press “0” to be connected to the Operator.

In the unfortunate event of the death, arrest, medical emergency or destitution of a U.S. citizen in a foreign country, there are certain services the Embassy can provide to the American citizen and/or the next-of-kin.

For information regarding these services, please write to ParaguayACS@state.gov or call the American Citizen Services Unit at (595) 21 213-715 x 2105.

The Embassy’s services are intended to ensure the American citizen’s well-being, not to affect the outcome of legal proceedings or medical procedures.  The Embassy cannot attempt to secure the release of an incarcerated U.S. citizen, nor can the Embassy provide legal representation or advice.
