The British Embassy in Tajikistan maintains and develops relations between the UK and the Republic of Tajikistan. Our work covers a range of issues including political and economic reform.

The British Embassy’s staff are working remotely as our building is currently closed. When calling, you may therefore hear a message stating that our offices are closed. However, we are available 24/7. If you are in need of urgent assistance, please stay on the line and select the option for ‘calling about an emergency involving a British National’ to speak to an officer.

For urgent consular support, please call (+992) 372 242 221 / +44 1908 51 6666 which will be answered 24/7, 365 days a year or email
