We work to improve the important and longstanding relationship between the UK and Malaysia by expanding trade and investment opportunities. We work together on foreign policy, defence and security issues, and encourage people-to-people links and scientific, educational and environmental exchanges, and provide consular support to British nationals.

The UK and Malaysia have an important and longstanding relationship based on Commonwealth values, education, trade and security links. We are working to improve the already close bilateral relationship by building upon several main areas of co-operation:

  • working with the Malaysian government on issues of common concern, such as economic development, human rights issues, and the environment

  • expanding trade and investment opportunities between the UK and Malaysia

  • supporting the work of the Malaysian government to prevent transnational crime, terrorism and weapons proliferation

  • maintaining the Chevening scholarships and alumni contacts, and encouraging scientific, educational and environmental exchanges

Our services

Visas

For information on whether you require a visa for the United Kingdom and how to apply go to the UK Border Agency website

Births, deaths and marriages

Information on how you can register a birth or death which occurred overseas, and legal documents for couples marrying or entering into civil partnerships abroad.

Passports and emergency travel documents

How to renew or replace your British passport when outside of the UK and information on getting replacement travel documents if your passport is lost or stolen. An emergency travel document enables British nationals abroad whose passport is lost/stolen or unavailable because it is being renewed or has been sent for visa application, to make a single or return journey to the UK or another country of residence, via a maximum of five transit countries.

Please make an appointment at the British High Commission Kuala Lumpur for this service.

Travel advice

Information on staying safe and avoiding problems when living or travelling abroad, with links to our embassies, high commissions and other diplomatic posts across the world.

How else we can help

In addition to the services listed above we can also:

  • 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

UK law says we have to charge for some services. Details of our current fees and the standards of service you can expect to receive are on display in all our consular offices.

What our British High Commission cannot do for you

We do our best to help British nationals in a wide range of situations, however:

  • 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
  • we cannot 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
  • we cannot 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
  • we cannot get you better treatment in hospital or prison than is given to local people
  • we cannot 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)
  • we cannot make travel arrangements for you, or find you work or accommodation
  • we cannot make business arrangements on your behalf
