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

We work with the Cuban government on a wide range of areas that include increasing bilateral trade and reducing the threat of organised crime.

We support improvements on human rights, recognising positive developments and raising concerns when we have them. We also provide consular support to British nationals..
