Foreign Service Officer Test (FSOT)

Attention Americans in Bosnia and Herzegovina!

If you are interested in becoming a diplomat, please consider taking the Foreign Service Officer Test (FSOT).  The U.S. Embassy will offer the test on Wednesday, February 4th, in Sarajevo.

In order to be eligible to take the FSOT, applicants must be:

  • U.S. citizens on the date they submit their registration package
  • At least 20 years old and no older than 59 years of age on the day you submit your registration
  • At least 21 years old and not yet 60 on the day you are appointed as a Foreign Service Officer (FSO)
  • Available for worldwide assignments, including Washington, D.C. 


Even though you are not required to know a foreign language to become a Foreign Service Officer (FSO), proficiency in one or more languages will enhance your competitiveness for selection.

If you are a capable, healthy, and dedicated candidate who is prepared to undertake the challenges facing our country and the world, taking the FSOT is the first step towards becoming an FSO.

Wednesday, December 17, 2014 at 10:00 AM Central Time to Wednesday, January 28 2015 at 10:00 AM Central Time:  The Pearson VUE seat selection portal will be open for candidates to schedule seats for the February testing window.
