Andrew Rosindell MP has urged Romford residents stranded abroad to contact him as he bids to help people return to the UK.
Mr Rosindell said he has been “inundated” with calls and email requests for assistance from those stuck in foreign countries.
The Romford MP said he has received reports of constituents stranded in Venezuela, Indonesia and remote parts of Peru.
He has also been contacted about people unable to fly back from countries such as Australia, Cambodia and New Zealand as flights back are too expensive.
“Any constituents who are stranded in foreign countries please be assured I am doing all I can to get you back,” Mr Rosindell said.

“We need the FCO to ratchet this rescue mission up as fast as possible.”
