Disabled access

The British Embassy Manila is keen to ensure that our building and services are fully accessible to disabled members of the public.

For security reasons, visitors to Visa and Consular Section are not permitted to drive their vehicles into the Embassy compound but there is reasonable space at the main entrance outside of the compound to allow them to be dropped off. The foot entrance to the building is a via a secure turnstile. Mobility impaired persons who are unable to pass through this security system are invited to use the vehicle entrance. There they will, like other visitors, be required to undergo a security inspection. Following this they will under escort travel along a well-lit covered footpath (wide enough for a wheel chair), to either the main entrance or to the Visa and Consular entrance of the main building. Static guards and or the escort will assist if required, in opening these front doors. Both entrances are on the ground floor.

Hearing and Sight dogs will be permitted within the building. Mobile induction loops are available to visitors if required. Accessible toilets (wide doors complete with handrails and fitted with alarm buttons) are likewise available to staff and visitors. The single building lift has buttons in Braille and provides accessibility to all floors.

If you need assistance to visit us or have other accessibility concerns, please contact the Security Manager at (63) (2) 858 2200.
