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

Our work covers a range of issues including political and economic reform.

We co-ordinate the bilateral relationship between the UK and Tajikistan, and provide consular assistance to British and unrepresented Commonwealth nationals. The embassy is co-located and works closely with the Department for International Development (DFID), which is the part of the UK government that manages Britain’s aid to developing countries, including Tajikistan, and works to alleviate extreme poverty.

You can access UK government services while in Tajikistan.
