The British High Commission is a British diplomatic mission, equivalent to an embassy, found in many former British colonies that are now members of the Commonwealth of Nations. Their general purpose is to provide diplomatic relationships as well as travel information, passports, dual-citizenship information, and other services between Commonwealth states.

Where some Commonwealth countries are not represented in another Commonwealth country, the British High Commission can assist such Commonwealth countries' citizens in some cases.

Some countries that were outside the Commonwealth, but have now returned to their membership of the Commonwealth have replaced their Embassies and Ambassadors with High Commissions and High Commissioners.
