We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Romania. The British Embassy in Bucharest provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Romania.

Our work covers a range of issues including security, prosperity, consular and Europe.

We support British business by offering expert trade advice to UK companies interested to invest or grow in the Romanian market.

Through a dedicated team of political and economic officers, we are working closely with Romania to increase economic growth and competitiveness in the EU. We also play an active role in supporting Romania’s efforts to fulfil its EU commitments. We offer consular assistance to British nationals living or travelling in Romania and work closely with Romanian law enforcement, security and defence authorities to share expertise and develop stronger ties.

You can access UK government services while in Romania.
