UK Embassy and Consulate of Spain

Spain has many diplomatic institutions and consulates around the world. In the United Kingdom there are only nine, among them we highlight the Spanish embassy located in London and the eight consulates located in different cities of the United Kingdom: Manchester, Belfast, Liverpool, Birmingham, Glasgow, Aberdeen, Edinburgh and Jersey.

There are many consulates that are not available to process Spanish visas, therefore, we are only going to show you the details of the 3 consulates in the UK where you can process your visa, but if you need any information our team of lawyers will be happy to help you solve all your doubts.

Many British citizens have decided to obtain a Spanish visa to spend more than 90 days in Spain, so they have to go to one of these consulates to process their residence visa.

I retire the 27th May and want to go to Spain 9th June. I rent a property here and end my tenancy but have my child here. Just wanted to get things sorted so I can start my new life. Please can someone help?

    I have a local government pension taxed at source in the UK, my wife and I are considering retiring to Spain I Lanzarote on a non lucrative visa. If I have that pension paid into a Spanish bank account would I be taxed again or is there still a reciprocal tax arrangement with Spain as I believe there was prior to Brexit?
    Regarding health insurance is there a list of government approved providers? and lastly is this something you can take us through.
    Kind Regards

      The process of answering the Spanish consulate in the UK is taking from 2 weeks to 3 months… it all depends on which Spanish consulate you go to…

          At the moment the Spanish consulate in London is not giving appointments… The Spanish consulate in Manchester and the Spanish consulate in Edinburgh are giving appointments without problems every day.

            No Marnus, you can only submit it where you live. In this case you will have to apply in London.

            We take appointments for our clients, if you want an appointment at any Spanish consulate in the UK just send us a contact form.

    Hello
    Two years ago we bought a second home in Majorca but because of Covid only managed to visit for the first time in July and August
    We have flights booked for the last week in October but noticed that our passports were only valid for another 5 months
    We presented the replacements to our Post office who advised that the new UK passports would be received in around three weeks
    Today we received a text message indicating that we should not expect them before the middle of November( 10 weeks) Now we do not have passports to enter in October
    Can we gain entry with just an OD such as a driving licence. How else can we enter as the information on the website of spanish consultate in UK is confusing

    Hi, my husband need to request the “Certificado de Antecedentes Penales” or DBS for the time he has lived abroad and I understand we can request it at the Spanish embassy and he can then go to Spain and pick it up. The problem we have is that we are unable to get in touch with the Spanish Embassy and the link to book an appointment can’t be found. How should we approach this matter? we require this document for the last stages of the adoption process and it has proven a challenge so far. Thank you
