Urgent assistance

If you’re in North-West Russia and you need urgent help (for example, you’ve been attacked, arrested or someone has died), call 007 812 320 3200. If you’re in the UK and worried about a British national in Russia, 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’re due to travel in the next 24 hours, contact us as soon as possible.

If you arrived in Russia on a Russian visa, its replacement must be obtained via visa sponsor in order to leave Russia. If you apply for an ETD because your passport has been lost or stolen, you will be expected to produce a Police report when applying for an exit visa from Russian authorities.

  • 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
