Disabled access

The Foreign & Commonwealth Office and this Embassy are keen to ensure that their buildings and services are fully accessible to disabled members of the public. Wherever possible, we have made our buildings and services accessible. Sometimes however, this is not possible due to security or other restrictions. In these situations we will endeavour to provide a service or access to a building in an alternative way to ensure equality of access for disabled people. To assist disabled visitors, we have set out below details of disabled access at this Embassy. We hope this information is helpful.

General physical access

  • Entrance to the Main Reception is clear, unobstructed and at ground level with no impediments.
  • Toilet facilities for public users can be found in Consular Section when approaching the main reception.

Contact us

If you need to visit us or use our services and feel that they may be inaccessible to you, please contact Mrs. Gaby Melvin (Tel: 17574100) who will try to find an alternative way of providing access for you.
