British Ambassador to the Dominican Republic and Haiti
We develop and maintain relations between the United Kingdom and the Dominican Republic and Haiti. This involves dealing with a wide range of political, commercial, security and economic questions of interest to the UK and the Dominican Republic and Haiti.
Services available by appointment
We may be able to provide an emergency travel document (ETD) if you can’t get a new or replacement passport in time to travel.
You can apply for an ETD if you’re a British national outside the UK and your passport has been lost, stolen, damaged, or expired. It doesn’t guarantee entry to every country; read what an ETD does and what you need to provide to get one. Please call us as soon as possible if: you are due to travel within the next 24 hours, or you have never held a British passport, or if you are applying on behalf of a child.
A limited range of services relating to official documents, certificates, and letters are available from this location.
We offer assistance following the death, hospitalisation, arrest, or other serious incident involving a British national.
We may be able to extend the validity of your current British passport in certain circumstances. To make an appointment, please telephone during business hours and select the Service Centre (option 1) followed by 0.
