UK and Indonesia enjoy a close relationship, with many common interests and values. We are partners in challenges like terrorism and global warming, and work together closely within the G20. We are also here to support and protect UK interests in Timor Leste.

Britain is a leading investor in this country. In April 2012 the Prime Minister and President Yudhoyono announced a commitment to double trade (goods & services) by 2015 to £4.4 billion.

We cooperate with international and local agencies to address global challenges including human rights and democracy, regional security, prosperity and climate change.

We also provide assistance, services and practical advice to British nationals visiting or living in Indonesia, and we deal with visa applications for those who wish to enter the UK to visit, study, live or work.
