In addition, U.S. citizens are encouraged to register with the Embassy’s SMS Alert system by emailing ACSBamako@state.gov, with their full name, Malian telephone number and dates of travel.

Where can I find information about filing taxes overseas?
My U.S. driver’s license expired. Can I renew it at the U.S. Embassy?
No. U.S. driver licenses can only be renewed in the U.S. Please check your state requirements for renewing your license. Each state has different regulations on driver license renewals.
Does the United States Embassy have a school for their U.S. citizens in Mali?
No. The Embassy does not have a school. The International School of Bamako (ISO) offers an English language educational program to children between the ages of 3 and 19 in pre-kindergarten through grade 12. However, the U.S. Embassy assumes no responsibility or liability for services provided by this institution.
Are there opportunities for U.S. citizens residing in Mali to be part of a community organization?
The U.S. Embassy does not have a community organization.
