British High Commissioner to Malaysia
We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Kuala Lumpur. The British High Commission in Kuala Lumpur provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Malaysia.
We represent the British government in its relations with the Malaysian government and present British policies to the Malaysian government and to Malaysians. We report and explain Malaysian policies to the British government and support British interests as well as coordinating the political, economic, environmental and commercial activities of the British government.
With nearly 16,000 Britons living in Malaysia and over 401,000 visiting every year, the High Commission supports British nationals if they need assistance.
If you’re in Malaysia and you need urgent help (for example, you’ve been attacked, arrested or someone has died), call 03 2170 2200. If you’re in the UK and worried about a British national in Malaysia, call +603 2170 2200.
