Citizen Liaison Volunteers

The American Liaison Network and Citizen Liaison Volunteers

The American Citizen Services unit is in the process of building our American Liaison Network of Citizen Liaison Volunteers (CLV) to ensure that we are able to communicate as effectively as possible with U.S. citizens in the event of an emergency.  We are looking for volunteers to serve as CLVs in various Federated States.  If you or someone you know may be interested, or you just want to learn more – let us know!

CLVs are private citizens who help the Embassy help U.S. citizens in need.  They assist travelers in distress, help us track down missing U.S. citizens, and, in the event of a natural disaster or other emergency, help us locate other American citizens so we can help get them to safety.  Most often, however, CLVs are called on to be our ‘eyes and ears’ in the community, providing valuable feedback on what life is like for ordinary U.S. citizens living in Japan.  CLVs are usually American citizens who are longer-term residents of the FSM.  Please note that this is a voluntary position that does not imply financial reimbursement.

If you would like to be a CLV, please provide us with your full name, date of birth passport number and your contact details via email at  KoloniaACS@State.gov Once you notify us of your interest, we’ll get back to you with more information and further instructions.
