Health Alert: U.S. Embassy Jerusalem

Location:  Israel, the West Bank, and Gaza

Event:  Coronavirus Economic Impact Payment

U.S. citizens living overseas may qualify for the Coronavirus Economic Impact Payment program.  Please visit the Internal Revenue Service Coronavirus Tax Relief site for the most up-to-date information regarding these payments and other tax information.  The U.S. Embassy cannot answer tax or impact payment questions.  Taxpayer questions should be directed to the Internal Revenue Service (IRS); a list of accountants can also be found on our website.

Be aware of possible scams. U.S. government agencies, including the IRS, are not sending unsolicited emails or phone messages seeking personal information or payments in order to send an economic impact payment more quickly.  For more information see the IRS statement on coronavirus-related scams.

We encourage all U.S. citizens abroad to enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) to receive the latest updates.
