British High Commission in India

The High Commission and the consular network in India are meant to help the UK citizens living in the country or traveling to India. The British High Commission is in New Delhi ; the British Deputy High Commissions are in Mumbai, Chennai, Kolkata and Bangaloare; the British Trade Offices are in Hyderabad, Ahmedabad , Pune and Chandigarh; while the only British Tourist Assistance Office is in Goa.

If a UK citizen is victim of a crime, loses the passport, is seriously injured or ill, needs a doctor or is arrested while in India, then help may come from the High Commission or Deputy High Commission located closest to the place where the incident happened. If a UK national dies or their child is abducted or they need a lawyer, the same officials can offer assistance. However, the only thing they can do is to provide a list of lawyers and a list of hospitals. All costs are supported by the UK citizen (through insurance, if applicable).
