Local Resources for U.S. Citizens

The Embassy in Sierra Leone can assist in finding medical help, contacting family members in the U.S. and transferring emergency funds, visiting American Citizens in jail, contacting an attorney, and making arrangements in the event an American citizen dies.

To assist in emergencies, the American Embassy in Sierra Leone maintains lists of lawyers, physicians and hospitals. The Embassy assumes no responsibility for the professional ability or integrity of the persons on these lists. The Embassy can also assist with emergency passport services if required.
