Hi there,

I have found two lists online, and they are very similar. You can
compare them with the lists of countries the USA does have extradition
treaties with:

"Afghanistan, Algeria, Angola, Bahrain, Bangladesh, Benin, Bhutan,
Botswana, Brunei, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cambodia, Cameroon, Cape
Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, China, Comoros, Djibouti,
Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Guinea, Guinea Bissau, Indonesia,
Iran, Ivory Coast, Jordan, Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Libya, Madagascar,
Mali, Maldives, Mauritania, Mongolia, Morocco, Mozambique, Nepal,
Niger, Oman, Philippines, Qatar, Rwanda, Samoa, Sao Tome e Principe,
Saudi Arabia, Senegal, Somalia, Sudan, Syria, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda,
USSR, United Arab Emirates, Vanuatu, Vietnam, Yemen, Yemen South,
Zaire & Zimbabwe"

Taken from "Extradition, US drug policy and the erosion of individual
liberties" by Howard Marks

"Countries which do not have extradition treaties but do maintain
diplomatic relations with the US are Afghanistan, Algeria, Armenia,
Bahrain, Bangladesh, Bophuthatswana, Brunei, Burkina Faso, Burundi,
Cameroon, Cape Verde, Central African Republic, Chad, China (People's
Republic of China), Ciskei, The Comors, Cote d' Ivoire, Djibouti,
Equatorial Guinea, Ethiopia, Gabon, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Indonesia,
Jordan, Korea (South), Kuwait, Laos, Lebanon, Madagascar, Mali,
Marshall Islands, Mauritania, Micronesia, Maldova, Mongolia,
Mozambique, Myanmar, Namibia, Nepal, Niger, Oman, Philippines,
Principe and San Tome, Qatar, Russian Federation, Rwanda, Saudi
Arabia, Senegal, Sudan, Syria, Togo, Tunisia, Uganda, Western Samoa,
Yemen, Zaire, and Zimbabwe.

Countries which have neither diplomatic relations nor extradition
treaties with the US are Andorra, Angola, Bantu Homelands, Bhutan,
Bosnia, Cambodia, Ciskei, Cuba, Iran, Korea (North), Libya, Maldives,
Serbia, Somalia, Taiwan, Transkei, Vanuatu, and Vietnam."

You will be able to get more detailed information by using the
combination of the following two sites :

1. (All
treaties in force on Jun 2001). Extradition treaty with each country
might be different for different offences.

2. for updates to any of the treaties.

The United Nations maintains a list, sorted by country, entitled:


which can be found here:

I do believe that extreme caution is warranted with this analysis,
needless to say. The fact that there does exist an extradition treaty
does not mean that it covers all crimes.  On the other hand,
remembering Manuel Noriega, the feds have, I do believe but cannot
offer a source, swooped in and grabbed someone, and brought them back
into U.S. jurisdiction.
