Today the Foreign & Commonwealth Office is launching a video which provides insight into consular incidents across the globe over a real 24 hour period. The video, hosted on You Tube, plots the location of 1000s of incidents involving British nationals on 27 June 2011. The incidents vary enormously from routine enquiries into visas, birth registrations, marriage documentation, and the issuing of emergency travel documents, to the notification of arrests, prison visits, assisting British nationals involved in bus crashes and serious accidents and liaising with families following fatalities. There were also cases involving forced marriage, child abduction, rape and murder.
The Council of British Hajjis has signed up as a partner to the Foreign & Commonwealth Offices’ “Know Before You Go” campaign to provide latest upto date travel advice.
‘Know Before You Go’ (KBYG) is an ongoing campaign to help Brits to stay safe and healthy abroad.
