Planning a round-the-world trip? Keep the British Embassy up-to-date with your whereabouts by registering with LOCATE.

The service is designed to assist British nationals, who are travelling or working abroad, in an emergency. Not only will it provide instant access to all your records and details, staff will be able to contact you directly to offer advice and help in a crisis, such as a natural disaster. It can also help family and friends find you, therefore reducing delay and worry.

How to register

You only need to register for the service once and then update your account when you make a new trip abroad or change your country of residence. You can even add planned trips abroad up to a year ahead – making it perfect for young travellers planning their gap year.
