Private American Citizens Residing Abroad

Americans Registered Abroad By Post
(List compiled July 1999 by the Bureau of Consular Affairs)

This list does NOT include U.S. Government (military and nonmilitary) employees and their dependents.

Editor's Note: This list was the last one published. "By Post" means that some countries have both an American embassy and consulate.

Also Note: There is also a report from the Government Accountability Office called '2010 Census: Counting Americans Overseas as Part of the Decennial Census Would Not Be Cost-Effective' which was released on September 14, 2004. This report discusses the number of Americans abroad and the problems with getting accurate statistics.

Americans living in the area of these posts are encouraged to register, which simply means they fill out a form to let the embassy or consulate know they are there. This helps in case of emergencies and situations like lost passports.

Many do not register, which means that in theory the number of Americans could be higher. These numbers also include children who became American citizens by being born in the United States, but whose parents could be citizens of other countries.

Although this list is from 1999, it still gives a good indication of where Americans are.
