The American Embassy encourages all U.S. citizens residing in Palau to register with the Embassy’s Consular Section. The State Department has a secure online registration website which will allow you, as an American citizen, to record residence information that the Department can use to communicate with you and assist you in case of an emergency. You are invited to register yourself and your family by accessing the site directly at Link to Internet-Based Registration System:

You may also register at the Embassy’s consular section if you do not have access to the internet. Registration is not required, but is strongly recommended.

Registration provides the Embassy with an effective means of documenting your citizenship and locating you in case of an emergency. Registration has proven useful in locating a relative following the death in the U.S. of a family member, in verifying U.S. citizenship after the loss or theft of a passport, and similar circumstances.
