Nominate someone who lives or works abroad

You can nominate someone for an honour if they live or work abroad and they’ve made achievements in either:

  • the UK and their achievement has a significant international element
  • another country

If they’re not British they’ll be given an ‘honorary award’.

There’s a different process for gallantry awards.

Download and fill in the nomination form and send it to the Royal, Ceremonial and Honours Unit, part of the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office (FCDO).

Download the FCDO guidance on completing the form.

You can also ask the unit questions about the nomination process.
