Simple list of extradition treaties starting on page 6 of this PDF file. The list has country, date of signing, date treaty entered into force and a citation you can use to find the treaty text. If the treaty was signed after 1990, you can find the text using the instructions given in the annotation for the Federal Digital System (FDSys).

Search Tip:

To answer the question, “What countries don’t have an extradition treaty with the United States?”, you’ll need to do a little work:

  1. Start off with the State Department’s list of “Independent States in the World” at http://www.state.gov/s/inr/rls/4250.htm.
  2. Set it side by side (either in paper or electronically) with the “List of countries having a bilateral extradition treaty with the United States.
  3. Cross off the countries with a bilateral extradition treaty from the list of independent states. Your remaining countries will not have an extradition treaty with the United States.
