Office access and opening times

On this page you will find information about disabled access to the British High Commission and our public holidays for 2015

Disabled access

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office and the British High Commission in Malaysia are keen to ensure that their buildings and services are fully accessible to disabled members of the public. Wherever possible, we have made our buildings and services accessible. Sometimes, however, this is not possible due to security or other restrictions. In these situations we will endeavor to provide a service or access to a building in an alternative way to ensure equality of access for disabled people.

General Physical Access If you anticipate requiring assistance, please telephone us in advance of your visit so that we can ensure that we are able to provide access for you (Tel: 2170 2200 and ask for the Security Manager).

Access for Impaired Visitors

  • Signs: generally clear and easy to read.

  • Guide dogs: guide dogs are welcome but please telephone us in advance of your visit so that we can ensure that we are able to provide access for you (Tel: 2170 2200 and ask for the Security Manager).

  • Emergency/Evacuation: procedures are in place to assist disabled persons in the event of emergency/evacuation.
