We work to sustain and develop the important relationship between the UK and the Kingdom of Cambodia.

We promote UK interests through a strong, effective relationship with Cambodia. We work in a number of areas including STEM education, human rights and good governance, climate change, and child protection.

We provide support and advice to the growing number of UK companies doing business in Cambodia, and provide consular assistance to British nationals, over 135,000 of whom visit Cambodia each year.

We also provide significant financial support for the Extraordinary Chambers of the Courts of Cambodia (Khmer Rouge Tribunal), to bring to justice those responsible for the atrocities committed during the Khmer Rouge era.

What the British Embassy can and cannot do for you

How else we can help. We can:

  • provide information about transferring funds
  • provide appropriate help if you have suffered rape or serious assault, are a victim of other crime, or are in hospital
  • help people with mental illness
  • do all we properly can to contact you within 24 hours of being told that you have been detained
  • offer support and help in a range of other cases, such as child abductions, death of relatives overseas, missing people and kidnapping
  • contact family or friends for you if you want
  • make special arrangements in cases of terrorism, civil disturbances or natural disasters

Although we try to help British nationals in a wide range of situations, we cannot:

  • get you out of prison, prevent the local authorities from deporting you after your prison sentence, or interfere in criminal or civil court proceedings
  • help you enter a country, for example, if you do not have a visa or your passport is not valid, as we cannot interfere in another country’s immigration policy or procedures
  • give you legal advice, investigate crimes or carry out searches for missing people, although we can give you details of people who may be able to help you in these cases, such as English-speaking lawyers
  • get you better treatment in hospital or prison than is given to local people
  • pay any bills or give you money (in very exceptional circumstances we may lend you some money from public funds, which you will have to pay back)
  • make travel arrangements for you, or find you work or accommodation
  • make business arrangements on your behalf
