MOST of you reading this will never have come into contact with a British consulate. In many ways, I hope you never do. But there's no guarantee of that. It's inevitable that with more than thirteen million British visitors to Spain annually, and an estimated 800,000 Britons who live here, every year there will be a few thousand who do need help - and that's what we're here for.
The nine consulates and 13 Honorary consuls across Spain are part of one of the largest global consular networks of any country in the world. Whether you are in the Balearics or the Canaries, basking on the Costas or working in a provincial town or city, there is a representative of the Foreign Office somewhere not too far from you. And before you go anywhere, it's easy to call us to see if we can resolve your enquiry straight away - in four out of five cases, we do.
