We maintain and develop relations between the UK and the Czech Republic. The British Embassy in Prague provides services to British nationals living in and visiting the Czech Republic.

Our work covers a range of issues including trade and investment and defence.

The trade and investment team works to boost the UK economy, both through offering tailored services to British companies in the Czech market, and by supporting British firms’ participation in high-value projects in the country. We are also working to improve relations between scientists and researchers involved in innovative projects in the Czech Republic and the UK.

The embassy’s consular team is one of the busiest in Central Europe, and routinely assists British nationals who find themselves in difficulty when visiting the Czech Republic, for example missing travel documents, hospitalisation or arrest.

You can access UK government services while in the Czech Republic.
