We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Barbados. The British High Commission in Bridgetown provides services to British nationals living in and visiting and the countries of the Eastern Caribbean: Antigua and Barbuda, Dominica, Grenada, St Kitts and Nevis, St Lucia, St Vincent and the Grenadines.

We look after the interests of British nationals in the region, work with the region to reduce drug trafficking, to adapt to the impact of climate change and we support British companies seeking to do business in the region. Additionally we aim to secure the support of the region in achieving British foreign policy objectives, such as the right of the Falkland Islanders to determine their own future. The Department for International Development Caribbean is also based in Barbados, working to support the economies and security of the region.
