Supporting British nationals in Brazil

Either you’re visiting Brazil this year for World Cup or for business; it’s always helpful to know that the Foreign & Commonwealth Office provides a complete guide on its website to British citizens who are in transit to or living in the South American country.

The file contains foreign travel advice that would be useful to anyone who is not familiar with the local conditions, language and legal frameworks.

Since Information about British Embassies, High Commissions and Consulates addresses to vaccinations and medical suggestions are considered in the pdf file.

Here is the list of some cases that Consulates can support you:

* Issue replacement passports;

* Provide information about transferring funds;

* Provide appropriate help if you have suffered rape or serious assault, are a victim of other crime, or are in hospital;

* Help people with mental illness;

* Provide details of local lawyers, interpreters and doctors and funeral directors;

* Do all we properly can to contact you within 24 hours of being told that you have been detained;

* Offer support and help in a range of other cases, such as child abductions, death of relatives overseas, missing people and kidnapping;

*Contact family or friends for you if you want;

* Make special arrangements in cases of terrorism, civil disturbances or natural disasters.
