Sending Money in an Emergency
When a U.S. citizen encounters an emergency financial situation abroad, the Department of State’s Office of Overseas Citizens Services (OCS) can establish a trust account in the citizen’s name in order to forward funds overseas if no other options are available. Please contact the Consular Section directly to inquire about this service.
