Complaints procedure

If you have a complaint about any of the services the Embassy provides, please write to us, addressing the letter to the appropriate section (Management, Press, Political) and provide as much information as possible. Our address is:

The British Embassy
29 Merrion Road
Dublin 4

If you are not satisfied with any consular services we provided and want to make an official complaint, please write to:

Customer Services Policy
Consular Directorate
Foreign and Commonwealth Office
King Charles Street
United Kingdom
Phone: +44 (0) 20 7008 1500
Fax: +44 (0) 20 7008 0426

We will investigate your complaint fully and we will do our best to give you a full reply within 20 working days. If we cannot give you a full reply within this time, we will tell you when we expect to do so.

Our complaints process follows three stages and if you are not happy with our initial response you will receive details of how to escalate the complaint to the Consular Director and ultimately a Foreign Office Minister/ your MP or the Parliamentary Ombudsman.

We will record and examine complaints, and use the information to help make sure we offer the best possible help and support.
