Message for U.S. Citizens: U.S. Consulate Dubai Seeking Citizen Liaison Volunteers in the Northern Emirates


Event: The Consular Section of the U.S. Consulate General in Dubai is seeking citizen liaison volunteers (CLV) resident in the Northern Emirates of Sharjah, Ajman, Um Al-Quwain, Ras Al-Khaimah, and Fujairah.

Key Roles and Responsibilities:

CLVs are key liaisons between the Consulate General Dubai and U.S. citizens in the UAE. As a CLV, you will be an important point of contact for the Consulate within the private U.S. citizen community, providing a window into the concerns, interests, and needs of U.S. citizens in your area. We are looking for volunteers from schools, universities, and businesses with large numbers of American citizens.

As a CLV you may be asked to:

· Disseminate information as directed by the Consulate General Dubai to the U.S. citizen community in your area;

· Be an on-the-ground resource to help the Consulate General Dubai understand issues of concern to U.S. citizens and share information that might further the Consulate’s consular operations;

· Report on available local resources for U.S. citizens in your area, identify gaps, and when possible, seek solutions to fill those gaps;

· In exigent situations only, and at the Consulate General’s explicit direction, help provide emergency services to U.S. citizens;

· Maintain local contacts in your area, including U.S. citizen and non-U.S. citizen expatriates, who might be of assistance to the Consulate General Dubai’s consular operations; · Encourage U.S. citizens to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP);

· Identify for the Consulate General Dubai’s consideration individuals who may be willing to serve as an alternate CLV for your area or as a CLV in another part of the country.


If you are resident in Sharjah, Ajman, Um Al-Quwain, Ras Al-Khaimah, or Fujairah and interested in becoming a CLV, please complete this form.
