We represent the UK and support British interests in Senegal. We develop and maintain relations between the UK and Senegal at all levels and in a wide range of fields. We also cover Guinea-Bissau and Cape Verde.

We champion trade and investment opportunities for British businesses in Senegal, and encourage the Senegalese government in their efforts to improve their business environment and regulatory framework.

We work with the Senegalese government and other international partners to address a range of peace and security issues in the region, including drug trafficking, other forms of organised crime and terrorism. We support action to further enhance democracy and good governance in Senegal.

We also provide an effective consular service to British nationals in Senegal, and a visa service to those wishing to travel to the UK.
