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 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 the person needing the emergency travel document is under 16, a parent or guardian should apply on their behalf.

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

If you are travelling in more than 3 weeks, check if you can get a new or replacement passport in time to travel.

If you are not a British citizen or have not had a British passport before

If you’re not sure, check if you’re a British citizen
