Disabled Access

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office is keen to ensure that our 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 endeavour to provide a service or access to a building in an alternative way to ensure equality of access for disabled people.

The British Consulate-General Rio de Janeiro is situated on the first floor of a residential building and there is no approved lift available. Visitors to the Consulate-General who have particular accessibility requirements should call or email us before visiting. We will offer a tailored service to customers requiring consular assistance or services.
