The British High Commission in Malaysia maintains and develops relations between the UK and 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.
