    Diplomatic missions of the United Kingdom • Embassies and High Commissions. • Consulates-General, Consulates and Liaison Offices • Other diplomatic missions

    This is a list of diplomatic missions of the United Kingdom, excluding honorary consulates. The United Kingdom has one of the largest global network of diplomatic missions. British diplomatic missions to other capitals of other Commonwealth countries are known as High Commissions (headed by ''High Commissioners''). For three Commonwealth countries, (namely India, Nigeria, and Pakistan) the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) still uses the term ''Deputy High Commission'' for Consulates-General (headed by Deputy High Commissioners), although this terminology is being phased out.

    In 2004, the Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) carried out a review of the deployment of its diplomatic missions, and subsequently over a two-year period closed its missions in Nassau in the Bahamas, Asunción in Paraguay, Dili in East Timor, Maseru in Lesotho, Mbabane in Swaziland, Antananarivo in Madagascar, Nukuʻalofa in Tonga, Tarawa in Kiribati, and Port Vila in Vanuatu. Additionally several consulates and trade offices were also closed, including those in Fukuoka in Japan, Vientiane in Laos, Douala in Cameroon, Porto in Portugal, along with Frankfurt, Leipzig, and Stuttgart in Germany, and Phoenix, San Juan, and Dallas in the United States. Other consulates in Australia, Germany, France, Spain, New Zealand, and the United States were downgraded and staffed by local personnel only. In 2012, Foreign Secretary William Hague announced the opening of an embassy in Liberia, and Haiti, the re-opening of embassies in Laos, El Salvador and Paraguay and a Consulate-General in Recife, Brazil. He also said that by 2015, the UK would have opened up to eleven new embassies and eight new Consulates or Trade Offices.
