We work on a wide range of political, commercial, security and economic questions of interest to the UK and Denmark.

We provide consular services for British citizens in Denmark and visa services for people wishing to visit Britain.

We also work closely with the Danes on responding to the financial crisis, minimising the threat from terrorism, building a strong and stable EU and on creating peace and security in Afghanistan. We explain UK policies to the Danish government, non-government organisations and media. We also report Danish views and policies to the British government.

We support British defence interests in Denmark, including developing links between the British and Danish militaries. We deal with trade and investment issues including helping British companies do business in Denmark and Danish companies do business with Britain.

The embassy works closely with the British Council Denmark on educational and cultural issues and with VisitBritain who deal with tourist enquiries for the UK.
