U.S.-UK Extradition Treaty & Relationship

The United States and the United Kingdom have long had a bilateral extradition relationship.   That relationship is currently governed by an extradition treaty signed in 2003.

The Treaty modernized the extradition relationship between the U.S. and UK and strengthened each country’s ability to extradite serious offenders wanted for a wide variety of crimes – including terrorism, other violent crimes, organized crime, and white-collar crime.
