Additional information:

Extradition treaties exist to speed up extradition by having the ground rules already agreed upon and the infrastructure and logistics to support prisoner transfers and transport between countries.

That means in a country with an extradition treaty a person can be retrieved from that country in a timely manner at the request of government officials.

This has led to the mistaken belief that you can not be extradited from countries that do not have extradition treaties already in place. This could not be further from the truth. The reality is that the US can request extradition through diplomatic contacts from any country even if no treaty already exists.

Whether or not that country bothers to comply with the request is an entirely case by case basis. However many countries without extradition treaties are more than happy to comply with a request if the circumstances are favorable for them to gain some favor, money or sometimes just good press.

Another risk of being in a non extradition country is that upon receiving a request to extradite you, without a treaty to follow, they may simply lock you up in local prisons for years while they investigate the claim. This can cause years of additional incarceration (whether or not you are guilty) in addition to any sentence that may be given upon return to the US.

A country without an extradition treaty in place simply means you are at the mercy of that country and its decisions rather than there being laws already in place to deal with the extradition request. It does not mean you wont be extradited, it just means you may spend years dealing with them while they figure out if they will extradite you, or not.

We will not list which Countries do not, but as of 2010, 110 Countries out of 192 or 194 have extradition with United States. So leaves bout 84 out there that so-called dont. Never seen list of counties that dont, although have seen many shows with guy`s fleeing to countrys that supposedly dont have, but still ended up being arrested. So not sure who really is out there.

Countries with diplomatic relations but no extradition treaty

Countries without treaties or diplomatic relations

If the government says you are anti-semitic or Nazi or enemy of the state as they claim they will come get you. But if you are Jewish and do something you are probably ok. I find it makes sense to move to another country, because in your own country you know good and bad elements. In a new country you will be aware and not do anything stupid. If you have nothing to lose I would suggest living other places with better taxes and cheaper food. The USA is finished as a decent country. It's so big and hard to get around the cities. Move to Europe and see beautiful cities.

The countries which have neither diplomatic relations nor extradition treaties with the U.S. are: Bhutan, Iran, Taiwan, and Korea (North).

Without searching the extradition laws of every country in the world, suffice it to say that, unless you have VERY low expectations, you would NOT want to live in any country that does not have an extradition treaty with the US.

This question gets asked about 1/2 dozen times a month and it has never been answered because no one has the time to research the laws of every single country on the face of the earth to find out the answer. Suffice it to say that - the countries that don't have extradition treaties with the U.S. - - you wouldn't want to live there.

All US states and territories honor each other's requests for extradition - there are no 'safe-haven' states - it is impossible to state with certainty whether a particular state will choose to extradite you or not, there are simply too many variables. It may depend on the offense and the seriousness of it and/or how badly they want you returned - most states WILLextradite for felony offenses.
