What the embassy cannot do for you
The embassy cannot:
• Help you enter a country, if you don’t have a visa or your passport is not valid.
• Pay any bills or give you money (in very exceptional circumstances, which you’ll have to pay back).
• Make travel arrangements for you, or find you work or accommodation.
• Make business arrangements on your behalf.
