Emergency help for British nationals in Thailand

Recommended Posts

If you need urgent help in Thailand, for example, if you’ve been arrested or hospitalised or are a victim of crime, call the 24-hour telephone number below. Select the option for consular assistance.

I won't be putting that number in my phone book, complete waste of time.

 

The British Embassy in Bangkok does not issue passports or visas, these are subbed out.

Their current website absolute pile of steaming and is impossible to navigate.

If you need any documents (the one thing that they still do) then you are hit with a 50 quid bill.

 

As for the article, I have never met a Brit abroad (in any country) who has actually been able to get any emergency help from our embassy.

As Colin rightfully proves, asking for any assistance from the British Embassy is a complete waste of time.

 

Any Brits who have lived here for a decent length of time will know that they British Embassy exists in Thailand only as a cushy posting.

 

Nonsense (apart from your second sentence and the £50 reference) from start to finish.

I'd love to know who you, or your family, would contact in the circumstances that the Embassy provides assistance if you won't call them!

The US embassy just came out with a bulletin proclaiming that services such as this will no longer be offered, perhaps the Brits caught wind of this and are gauging if it's worth the effort?

I suppose along with every man and his dog they could offer health insurance for retirees. The mention of which will result in another HI  pop up!
