We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Democratic Republic of Congo. The British Embassy in Kinshasa provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Democratic Republic of Congo.

Our primary mission is to consolidate peace and reduce poverty in Democratic Republic of Congo. As well as managing the political relationship, we provide consular assistance to British nationals in both countries and support trade and investment. The UK, through the Department for International Development, is a major donor to Democratic Republic of Congo.

You can access UK government services while in Democratic Republic of Congo.
