Our American Citizen Services (ACS) Unit can assist when U.S. citizens in Qatar are arrested, missing, victims of violent crime, become ill, die, or need immediate help. One of our most important roles is to keep family members in the U.S. informed, so they can make necessary decisions and provide financial support.
