Disruption to emergency contact numbers for consular assistance
Due to essential maintenance work, the Embassy switchboard will be out of service between 9pm and 9.30pm on 18 June and 12.30am to 1am on 19 June. This will affect our consular out-of-hours emergency contact messages. If you need to contact us urgently during these periods, please ring the Foreign and Commonwealth Office in London on +44 207 008 1500 and ask for the Global Response Centre, otherwise please call again outside these periods. Please note this service is for emergency consular assistance for British nationals only. We are not able to offer information on visas on this number.
