The British Embassy in Bangkok maintains and develops relations between the UK and Thailand.

Find out more about our work on the UK and Thailand news page.

Getting help in Thailand

If you need urgent medical help or are a victim of crime, call the local emergency services on the following numbers:

  • the tourist police - an English speaking service for visitors to Thailand 1155
  • medical emergency 1669
  • police 191
  • ambulance and rescue service 1554

Contact your insurance provider if you have one. They will tell you what your policy covers, and what you need to do to make a claim.

In many situations, you will be able to help yourself without needing to contact the British Embassy. Check our guidance on:

If you need urgent or emergency assistance

We can help British nationals in emergencies in Thailand. We will prioritise helping those who are vulnerable and need our help the most. For example if you:

  • have been injured or assaulted
  • are arrested for a crime
  • know a British national in Thailand who has died and you need assistance

If you need emergency assistance, or if our guidance has not given you the help you need:

  • in Thailand call +66 (0) 2 305 8333
  • in the UK call +44 (0)  20 7008 5000

Our phone lines are open 24/7.

If you cannot use your passport

You can apply for an emergency travel document if you need to travel urgently and cannot use your passport because it is lost, stolen or damaged.

If you are travelling in more than 3 weeks, check if you can get a new or replacement passport in time to travel.

If you do not need to travel urgently, you should still report a lost or stolen passport.

Getting a visa to the UK

The British Embassy does not provide visas and cannot advise on UK visas. If you have any questions about the application process or your visa status, contact UK Visas and Immigration.

You can check if you need a visa and apply for one.

Official documents and services we provide

We provide a limited range of notarial and documentary services when local notary publics, solicitors, or lawyers cannot provide them. You will need to pay a fee for these services.

Support for British nationals living in Thailand

Read our guidance for living in Thailand for information on travelling to, living, working and studying there.
