Disabled access

The Foreign and Commonwealth Office, the British Embassy The Hague and the British Consulate General Amsterdam 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 the British Embassy The Hague. We hope this information is helpful.
