Permanent Observers

The status of Permanent Observer to the Organization of American States was established by the General Assembly at its first regular session, held in San José, Costa Rica, in 1971 [AG/RES. 50 (I-O/71)]. Permanent Observers participate in the Organization’s activities and contribute to its programs.

The OAS currently has 70 Permanent Observers.
