Consular Information Sheet Law and Legal Definition

Consular information sheet means a document issued by the U.S. Department of State that contains the latest information about a country including information on the health conditions, crime, unusual currency or entry requirements, any areas of instability, and the location of the nearest U.S. embassy or consulate in the subject country. It provides the requisite information for every country of the world. The U.S. government publishes consular information sheet through its Department of State. Such sheets are extremely helpful in providing travel information that one normally doesn't find in guide books. The information in Consular Information Sheets is usually prepared by staff in the nearest US Embassy or Consulate.
