Emergency Financial Assistance

If you require emergency financial assistance to return to the United States, contact us at ConsularAsmara@state.gov. Emergency financial assistance is available only in limited circumstances and is in the form of a return ticket to the United States. Your passport will be amended so that is valid only for a direct return to the United states, and will not be able to receive a full validity passport until you repay the U.S. government for the cost of the ticket.
