Five ways the British Embassy can help you abroad

International movers aren’t always savvy when it comes to knowing about the support of your own embassy; here’s a handful of pointers to remind you of why they’re here..,

1. If you lose your passport

If your passport is lost or stolen they can issue you with a replacement one or, in some situations, an emergency travel document.

2. If you’re a victim of crime

They can help you get medical attention if you need it, contact your family and friends to let them know what has happened, and give you a list of local lawyers and interpreters.

3. If you have to go into hospital

They can help you liaise with your insurance company or a medical evacuation company and can contact your family and friends to let them know what has happened. They can also help if someone dies.

4. If you need emergency funds

They can give you information on how to transfer money from the UK.

5. If you’re arrested

In some countries you’re not entitled to call a lawyer, but you are legally entitled to call your nearest embassy wherever you are arrested. The British embassy can put you in touch with lawyers and contact your friends and family at home.
