Additional Information British Consulate in Istanbul:
A typical British Consulate: Because British Embassies as such are located in capitals or principal cities in foreign countries – which might be hostile to the UK, a western power, or even non-aligned –
security of the British Embassy compound is paramount and there can be great distances between capitals and provincial cities in certain, larger countries, often making them out of reach for many people needing
British embassy assistance. The United Kingdom operates British consulates within certain countries which are popular destinations for tourists or who might have large ex-patriate work forces located there.
A British consulate is like a mini British embassy or satellite of the British embassy manned by fewer staff members, and is headed by a British national having the title (Honorary) Consul Plus. A British consulate would be
able to provide most of the services given by an British Embassy but on the spot, at a local level, usually quickly and including, for example, consular assistance to British nationals who might be situated nearby and usually
are able to help with such consular services like visa applications, lost, damaged or stolen passports, prison visiting, assistance with domestic matters such as births, deaths and marriages, etc. Any problems involving British citizens
over and above the scope of a British consulate’s authority can always be referred on to the British Embassy itself.
