Foreign Outposts on Saba

Embassies and consulates can help travelers in need of assistance


Embassies and consulates can provide vital medical, legal, and financial direction to citizens who are traveling outside of their home country. Travelers on Saba who need assistance should contact the local embassy or consulate that serves the island.

With an area of only 5 square miles and fewer than 25,000 visitors annually, there are no embassies or consulates stationed on Saba itself. Although crime is generally not a problem, medical issues and hurricanes can threaten travelers on the small island.

Should a medical emergency, natural disaster, or a civil problem occur while you are staying on Saba, your local embassy or consulate can assist in securing medical help, finances, and communication. While embassies and consulates cannot serve as doctors, banks, or lawyers, they can help you find those services.

Your consulate and embassy can also assist you in the unlikely event that you are victim of a crime or are charged with a crime. If you become the victim of a crime, contact the local law enforcement authorities and your embassy and consulate. If you happen to be charged with a crime while staying on Saba, your local embassy or consular agent can help you understand the legal system and direct you to legal representation.

Prevention is the best cure. Consider looking through your country's tips for citizens who are traveling abroad. Citizens of the United States can consult the Bureau of Consular Affairs Web site for a list of safe travel tips (

In the event of an emergency or natural disaster, it can be helpful for countries to have a list of its citizens traveling in that area. Travelers are advised to register their international trip with their home department of state, travel, or foreign affairs. In the United States, citizens can register their trip abroad with the State Department (

Residents of Saba may also need to enlist the help of embassies and consulates as they travel abroad. Although Saba was granted responsibility for handling its own affairs on the island in 1954, embassies and consulates of the Netherlands still represent its citizens when abroad.
