Countries Without Extradition 2019

Extradition is a government process that allows governments to turn over a person accused or convicted of a crime to the country where they were charged or convicted. For example, if someone in the United States commits a crime and goes to another nation to evade punishment, law enforcement of the second country can detain and deliver the accused back to the United States to stand trial.

In some nations, however, there are no extradition treaties in place. This means that a person convicted of a law in one country does not have to be returned to that country to face trial or punishment. Even in nations with treaties in place, geopolitical issues could lead to a dispute over extradition.

There are a number of nations that do not have extradition treaties with the United States.
