We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Hong Kong. The British Consulate-General in Hong Kong provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Hong Kong and Macao.

We deal with a wide range of political, commercial and economic questions of interest to the UK and Hong Kong.

We are here to support and protect UK interests in Hong Kong and Macao. The Consulate-General, one of the UK’s largest, was officially opened on 1 July 1997, following the handover of Hong Kong to the People’s Republic of China.

You can access UK government services while in Hong Kong.

Urgent assistance

If you’re in Hong Kong or Macao and you need urgent help (for example, you’ve been attacked, arrested or someone has died), call +852 2901 3000. If you’re in the UK and worried about a British national in Hong Kong, call 020 7008 1500.

Get an emergency travel document

You can apply for an emergency travel document if you’re abroad and your passport has been lost or stolen, damaged or expired, and you can’t get a new or replacement passport in time to travel.

If you are due to travel in the next 24 hours, contact us

An emergency travel document does not guarantee entry to every country. Read what an emergency travel document does.

If you do not have a recent passport quality photo, we have a passport photo machine in the British Consulate-General’s consular section.

Please note we will only accept applications if you are travelling within 7 days from the date of your appointment and we will normally only issue an emergency travel document 1 day before travel unless a visa is required for the destination you are travelling to.

Apply online for an emergency travel document if you:

  • are over 16 years old and
  • are a British citizen and
  • have previously owned a British passport

Contact us to apply for an emergency travel document if you are:

  • over 16 years old but have not owned a British passport before or
  • not a British citizen or
  • applying for a child under 16 years old

Once you have contacted us, you will be advised to make an appointment to apply for an emergency travel document at the British Consulate-General Hong Kong.
