US Embassy Barbados
"Support For Traveling U.S Citizens"

The US Embassy Barbados is on hand to assist traveling US citizens who may find themselves in genuine emergency situations, such as criminal activity, destitution and serious illness.

They will also be able to assist you with any passport problems, visa services, notarial services, federal benefits and other usual consular services.

There is a US Embassy actually based on the island of Barbados and this tends to oversee much of these services that are offered to the neighbouring East Caribbean islands as well.

How Might The US Embassy In Barbados Help You?

As travelers, it is imperative that you remember that you are subject to the laws of any country that you are visiting. This will be the same for Barbados.

In general, Barbados laws are not too dissimilar from most US states and while on the island you need to abide to the usual legal practices here. If you are not sure over a certain issue, do not do anything until you have found out for sure. 

In the unlikely event that you were to find yourself arrested, it is basic international law that the applicable authorities immediately inform the American Embassy.

Whilst the officials at The US Embassy Barbados will not be able to get the local Barbados authorities to drop their charges, they will be able to ensure that your fundamental human rights are respected and that you have every opportunity to access the correct legal professionals to ensure justice.

Furthermore, they will be able to get in contact with your family, give you legal advice on our local laws and visit you if you are incarcerated.

In certain circumstances (i.e. definite emergency situations), the American Embassy may also be able to sort out funds if you have found yourself in a position of destitution. You should be aware, however, that there is a charge for this service.
In some instances, visitors are advised to ensure that they have scheduled an appointment, prior to turning up at the Embassy. For the drop-in services, if payments are due in cash, the Embassy states that processes will be sped up if the exact fee can be given.

If you do require some more information on the US Embassy in Barbados and of how they may be able to be of assistance to you during your vacation in Barbados, you can contact them directly at (246) 227-400 to speak with the Embassy duty officer or (246) 227-4399 for the Consular Section.

Where is The US Embassy in Barbados Located?

The US Embassy Barbados is based at the following address:

American Embassy,
Wildey Business Park,
Wildey, St. Michael BB 14006,

The Embassy is open between the hours of 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM Mondays to Fridays and do be aware that it closes for both local and US bank holidays.

Extra Peace Of Mind

At the end of the day, nobody wishes to find themselves in a position whereby they need to contact their embassy. Embassy staff will be the first to appreciate this and they will be trained to attempt to resolve any situation that may inadvertently arise.

If you find yourself in a grave situation and really do not know who else to turn to, ensure you contact the US Embassy Barbados straight away. The service they provide can be worth their weight in gold and it is certainly very convenient that the East Caribbean Embassy is based on this exact island.

For US citizens traveling to any part of the world, it is always reassuring to keep the information for your country’s embassy at hand. Just in case, I think it is a good idea for you write this information down and take it along with you, while on your Barbados vacation.

Put it in with your overseas medical insurance policy and keep it somewhere safe at all times.
