Foreign Mission Member Accreditation/Notification

Our Mission

The Department of State’s Office of Foreign Missions (OFM) oversees the development and enforcement of policies and guidance relating to the accreditation of foreign mission members, with the exception of bilateral Chiefs of Mission, Heads of Delegation, Charge d’affaires, and Deputy Chiefs of Mission and their dependents (which is handled by the Office of the Chief of Protocol). Further, OFM is the office of record for diplomatic and consular officers and other employees of foreign governments and international organizations in the U.S. and its territories.
