We maintain and develop relations between the UK and the USA. The British Consulate General in Los Angeles provides services to British nationals living in and visiting southern California, Nevada, Arizona, Hawaii, Utah, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands, and American Samoa.

We have had consular representation in Los Angeles since the nineteenth century, and UK ties with the region are deep and extensive. Our work involves handling a wide range of political, commercial, cultural, security and economic interests to the UK and our region. The consulate also provides consular assistance to British nationals who live or visit our area of coverage.

You can access UK government services while in the USA.
