The Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA) is a United States law passed in 1938 requiring that agents representing the interests of foreign powers in a "political or quasi-political capacity" disclose their relationship with the foreign government and information about related activities and finances.

Criticisms include various agents being part of the Israel lobby not being registered, such as the American Israel Public Affairs Committee and the Anti-Defamation League.
