The U.S. Department of State, Overseas Citizens Services (formerly Special Consular Services), Office of Policy Review and Interagency Liaison is responsible for process service under the Foreign Sovereign Immunities Act (FSIA) via the diplomatic channel in accordance with 28 U.S.C. § 1608(a)(4) and implementing regulations. (Source: http://www.travel.state.gov)
The defendant to be served by the Department of State must be a foreign state or political subdivision only, as defined in Section 1603 of the FSIA (Attachment D), not an agency or instrumentality of a foreign state (which is to be served under Section 1608(b) of the FSIA). The Department of State does not serve natural persons under the FSIA. (Source: http://www.travel.state.gov)
The FSIA allows for process service under Section 1608(a)(4) only after 30 days have passed since service was attempted under Section 1608(a)(3). The U.S. Postal Service and private courier services can deliver documents to virtually any location. Plaintiffs should attempt service under Section 1608(a)(3) unless a foreign state has specifically objected to service by mail. (See Section 9.e., page 4). (Source: http://www.travel.state.gov)
