Our mission

We cover Senegal, Cape Verde and Guinea-Bissau. Our mission is to enhance the security and prosperity of the UK, and to contribute to sustainable development in the region, in particular through supporting bilateral trade and investment, encouraging democracy and good governance and working with regional and international partners to reduce conflict and beat drug-trafficking and other international crimes in the region. We also support British nationals and provide visa services to our customers.
