The UK diplomatic presence in Austria consists of three missions - the British Embassy, the UK Mission to the United Nations and the UK Delegation to the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe. The missions are co-located in Vienna.

The Embassy develops and maintains the close relationship between the United Kingdom and Austria. The main work of this is through the EU, where economic and Eurozone issues, energy policy and the single market are important. The Embassy also works together to increase international security. Vienna is part of the Central European Network and works in partnership with embassies in neighbouring countries to report on issues of common interest.

British nationals who need emergency assistance outside normal office hours should call +43 (1) 716130 where they will be given details on how to proceed and how to contact a duty officer if needed.

In addition to the services listed above we can also:

  • 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
  • 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

You can apply for an emergency travel document (sometimes known as an ‘emergency passport’) if you’re a British national outside the UK and your passport has been lost, stolen, damaged or has expired. You should first try to renew or replace your passport if it has expired or is damaged. Only apply for an emergency travel document if you need to travel before you can get a replacement.

The emergency travel document will only be valid for the journey that you specified when you applied and for a specific period of time. This will be shown on the document. Your existing British passport will be cancelled in most cases. Immigration authorities may keep your emergency travel document when you arrive at your destination.

Child protection is a high priority for the UK Visa & Immigration Agency, and UK/Austrian border officials are especially vigilant in the case of minors (i.e. children under 18) travelling on their own or in the company of adults who are not their parents or legal guardians. Carrying a letter of consent for minors is a precautionary measure recommended by the UK and Austrian authorities. It does not, however, automatically guarantee the problem-free movement of minors who are not travelling with the person legally exercising parental care over them.

The British Embassy in Austria issues a wide range of legal documents for British nationals. An appointment must be made for each service. If there is no specific formal requirement for a notarial service or certificate to be provided by the British consulate, local notaries or lawyers can sometimes provide these services more conveniently than the British consulate. Check with the relevant authority (eg city councils, town hall, registry office, tax authorities etc.) either in the UK, Austria or a third country, that our consular certificate or service will be accepted.

Your local British consulate cannot confirm this information, only the relevant authority can provide this confirmation. You can get examples of the wording of the consular certificates to present to the relevant authority for advice. Refunds of consular fees are not given for certificates or notarial services that are not accepted by the requesting authority. Fees for consular certificates and documents are paid at the consulate on the day of the appointment and can be paid by credit card, or in cash.
