Can I go bankrupt in the UK from abroad?
If you reside outside the UK and have debts based in the UK, it is possible to file for bankruptcy whilst outside the UK. There are many conditions for this: if you are residing in any of the EU countries and have been for over 3 months, you must file bankruptcy in that country according to that country’s bankruptcy laws and procedures.
If you are residing outside any EU country and have not been outside the UK for over 3 years, you can file for bankruptcy in the UK, however you will need a representative to do this for you as it is filed in the High Court in London. Our Foreign Bankruptcy Assistance Programme can help with this.
