Just about any country you can think of has interests in the United States, and many governments, companies and other entities pay foreign agents to influence U.S. policy and opinion in pursuit of those interests.
Foreign Lobby Watch uses the semi-annual reports foreign agents are required to file with the Department of Justice under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) to calculate the countries with the highest spending, learn more about different registrants acting on behalf of foreign interests, and more!
Figures on this page are calculations by the Center for Responsive Politics based on reports made available by the Department of Justice and updated daily. Totals reflect payments received between January 1, 2017 and present. Read more about our methodology.
