Privacy Act Written Statement

The Privacy Act of 1974 prohibits a U.S. Consular Office from releasing any information about a U.S. citizen without their written consent except as set forth in the Act. A U.S. citizen can complete a Privacy Act Written Statement (Form DS-5505) (PDF 31KB) authorizing a Consular Officer to contact individuals on their behalf and disclose information.

Please note that we will provide the Privacy Act Written Statement to U.S. citizens requesting consular assistance, but we cannot under any circumstances compel an individual to complete and submit the form. We advise U.S. citizens to carefully consider the individuals to whom they authorize disclosure of information.  However, we also note that failure to complete the Privacy Act Written Statement may make it more difficult, or impossible, for the Department of State to provide assistance.
