If you become sick or injured, the Consular section can provide you with a list of local doctors, dentists, and medical specialists.

If you are seriously injured or ill, the Consular section can assist you in finding emergency medical care, and, if you wish, inform your family and friends.
The Embassy of the United States of America and its Consular section are forbidden by law to act as a guarantor for any medical bills. However, if you need funds for medical care, we can assist you in contacting family and friends to transfer money to you, and we can facilitate the transfer. In case of a life-threatening medical emergency, where medical care would be withheld absent prior payment, the Consular section can arrange for small, short-term loans. However, recipients of these loans are subject by U.S. law to travel restrictions until the loans are repaid.
