Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) Ministers are regularly hosted by foreign Governments as part of their official duties. This can include covering some of the costs of accommodation, travel and security support.

The FCO does not hold records on the funding of overseas trips undertaken by non-FCO Ministers. The Government publishes on a quarterly basis information about Ministers' visits overseas. Information for the period May 2010 to December 2011 is in the Library of the House.
