Ambassador Akillino H. Susaia

Greetings and welcome to the website of the Embassy of the Federated States of Micronesia in Washington, D.C.

This website provides a user-friendly platform which enables you to navigate with ease and accessibility to consular, diplomatic, and government to government related matters regarding our bilateral relations with the United States. Our goal is to ensure our citizens are being informed of these matters. To that end, we hope to link this website with the respective Departments of both the FSM and U.S. governments which can complement these services. The Embassy will be proactive in its engagement and information dissemination efforts by effectively monitoring and updating the information on our site on a regular basis.

As your Ambassador to the United States I urge that as guests in our host country, the United States of America, we continue to strive as productive and contributing members of our respective communities. The privilege provided to us by the Compact to settle and live in these communities carries with it the responsibility to abide by the rules and laws of this country. Even though the terms of the Compact enable and provide us visa free admission and unlimited length of stay, we should not take that for granted. The Compact of Free Association is unique to the FSM; hence the immigration privileges that provide us the peace of mind to migrate freely seeking opportunities to better innovate and prosper our livelihoods should not be abused but protected so that our future generations can also enjoy such privileges.

I wish you all the best in your endeavors and hope that the services and information provided in this website are useful and meet your needs.

Kalahngan, Kilisou, Kuloh, Kamagar!!

Best Regards,

Akillino Harris Susaia
Ambassador of the Federated States of Micronesia to the United States
