Movement Control Order

We remain open during the period of restricted movement. Understandably, it will not be Business As Usual as we have started remote working arrangements for our staff in order to observe the restriction.

Our priority is to make sure that British Nationals in Malaysia are given the necessary consular support during this time. British Nationals who require consular services can contact the Consular Team 24/7 by calling +603 21702312 or contact them online.

Privacy notice

If you visit the High Commission see our privacy notice for visitors which explains how we will process your data for security and public health management reasons.

Making a consular appointment

Our High Commissions, Embassies and Consulates offices deal with a large number of urgent cases each year. Before contacting our offices with non-urgent enquiries, please read our Support for British nationals abroad: a guide to see if the information you need is there. If you still cannot find the information you need, you can contact your nearest Consular team.

Disabled access

The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office and the British High Commission in Malaysia 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 endeavor to provide a service or access to a building in an alternative way to ensure equality of access for disabled people. To assist disabled staff and visitors, we have set out below details of disabled access at the High Commission. We hope this information is helpful.

General Physical Access If you anticipate requiring assistance, please telephone us in advance of your visit so that we can ensure that we are able to provide access for you (Tel: 2170 2200 and ask for the Security Manager).
