UK help and services in Spain

The British Government have Expat’ Services to help you if you’re visiting, studying, working or living in Spain. Their main website includes information about trading with and doing business in the UK and Spain, and your rights after the UK’s exit from the EU.

WE SUGGEST IT IS WELL WORTH SIGNING UP TO THEIR EMAIL ALERTS … as there can be a lot of “fake or vague news” elsewhere, particularly Social Media.

If you get stuck – you may find the British Embassy / Consulate can help you with certain things:  Visit their web site or download their leaflet here:

  • If you need urgent help (for example, you’ve been attacked, arrested or someone has died),
    Call +34 965 21 60 22.
  • You can join them on Facebook :
  • Provide help if you are a victim of crime, have suffered rape or serious assault, or are in hospital, including contacting your family or friends if you wish
  • Help people with mental health needs
  • Issue replacement full passports via our regional passport centre in Madrid (passport forms can be downloaded from
  • If your passport has been lost or stolen, we may be able to offer you an emergency passport
  • Provide information about transferring funds in an emergency
  • Provide details of local lawyers, interpreters, doctors and funeral directors
  • Do all we properly can to contact you within 24 hours of being told that you have been detained
  • Offer support and help in a range of other cases, such as child abduction, death of relatives overseas, missing persons and kidnapping
  • Make special arrangements in cases of terrorism, civil disturbances or natural disasters
  • Issue certificates, standard translations and provide other notarial services

I would encourage you to use their services or at least read-up on their web site first – it’s useful and usually the most up-to-date.

The British Consulate in Alicante represents the UK government in Alicante and Murcia regions of Spain.
