Getting help

If you cannot get the support you need from local services, the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) can help British people abroad.  

We prioritise emergencies and people who are vulnerable, for example, if someone’s:  

  • ill, injured, or involved in a crime  

  • with a British person who’s died
