To provide the consular protection around the clock for Chinese citizens abroad, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs is loosing no time to prepare to build the global consular protection and service emergency call center, which was officially launched this year and now is in the trial use stage. 

“In the face of emergency and need of consular protection and assistance, Chinese citizens abroad can call 0086—10—12308 or 0086—10—59913991 for help.” In other words, in the case of risks or difficulties, Chinese citizens abroad could dial the unified number of the call center. After being opened, the center will provide 24-hour hot-line answer for consular protection and service. If necessary, any Chinese citizen in any place abroad can call 12308 as soon as possible to seek consular protection and assistance from the motherland.
