The FCO's consular service is a major operation. Every hour of every day our consular staff around the world are helping British nationals. It is one of the most important parts of the Government's foreign policy. In 2002, our 1,700 consular staff helped over 53,200 British travellers and issued over 450,000 passports. The Travel section of this website contains a wealth of information for anyone planning a trip overseas. Our Travel Advice is based on the best and most up-to-date information available to us. The advice is designed to help British travellers and citizens to take their own decisions about their travel plans. It deliberately focuses on the potential risks and problems involved in travel overseas. But the overwhelming majority of visits are of course trouble-free. Follow the links to access the following:
