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

Our work covers a range of issues including a range of British interests in Mexico, working together through a number of bilateral programmes, including political, commercial and economic activities of interest to both countries.

We also provide services at our Embassy in Mexico City and our Honorary Consulate in Cancun. Our Department for International Trade (DIT) offices in Monterrey and Guadalajara support British companies trading in Mexico and Mexican companies investing in the United Kingdom.

You can access UK government services while in Mexico.
