List of ambassadors of the United Kingdom to the Dominican Republic
The Ambassador of the United Kingdom to the Dominican Republic is the United Kingdom's foremost diplomatic representative to the Dominican Republic.
From 1999 to 2015 the holder was also ambassador to the Republic of Haiti. In June 2012 the British Foreign Secretary announced that the UK was to open a new embassy in Haiti. In 2015 Sharon Isabel Campbell was appointed as dedicated ambassador to Haiti, but still to be non-resident, since she is married to the ambassador to the Dominican Republic, Christopher John Campbell.
