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

We are working with Guatemala on a range of issues to strengthen political and trade links. Our work also includes supporting British nationals in Guatemala.

You can access UK government services while in Guatemala.

Urgent assistance

If you’re in Guatemala and you need urgent help (for example, you’ve been attacked, arrested or someone has died), call +502 2380-7300. If you’re in the UK and worried about a British national in Guatemala, call 020 7008 1500.

Get an emergency travel document

You can apply for an emergency travel document if you’re abroad and your passport has been lost or stolen, damaged or expired, and you can’t get a new or replacement passport in time to travel.

If you are due to travel in the next 24 hours, contact us as soon as possible.

If your passport has been lost or stolen, you will need to obtain a police report before applying for an emergency travel document. Once you have your emergency travel document you will need to replace your entry stamp with Immigration Authorities. This is usually a quick process and can only be done at the City.

Apply online for an emergency travel document if you:

  • are over 16 years old and
  • are a British citizen and
  • have previously owned a British passport

Contact us to apply for an emergency travel document if you are:

  • over 16 years old but have not owned a British passport before or
  • not a British citizen or
  • applying for a child under 16 years old

Once you have contacted us, you will be advised to book an appointment for an emergency travel document at British Embassy Guatemala City.
