British Ambassador to Israel
We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Israel. The British Embassy in Tel Aviv provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Israel.
We promote Britain’s security, prosperity and well-being, and regional peace, through partnership with Israel. We deal with political, commercial, security and economic questions of interest to the UK and Israel and provide consular assistance to British nationals in Israel.
If you’re in Israel and you need urgent help (for example, you’ve been attacked, arrested or someone has died), call +972 (0)3 725 1222. If you’re in the UK and worried about a British national in Israel, call 020 7008 1500.
