British Ambassador to Brazil
We are the main mission in the country responsible for the bilateral relations between UK and Brazil
We lead on four policy priorities.The British consulate general in São Paulo is mainly dedicated to one of the Foreign & Commonwealth Office’s essential services: supporting the British economy. The British consulate general in Rio de Janeiro is focused on the other two essential services: supporting British nationals abroad and supporting managed migration for Britain. The consular network across Brazil works in support of the activities of the three main British posts in Brazil.
