Helping British nationals in difficulty overseas is a vital part of
the work of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO). We provide
advice and assistance and support to British nationals travelling
overseas. Britons make over 50 million overseas trips each year and
although the majority of those are trouble free, if things go wrong the
British Embassy is there to help.
The help we can provide is limited so it’s important to take as many
precautions as possible before you travel, and to know what our
Our Customer Charter sets out our commitment to providing a high level of service to you and what we ask from you in return.
