Change to passport service for British nationals in Spain and Andorra

New procedures are coming into force from Monday 13th May 2013 for British citizens in Spain and Andorra when applying for a new passport.

One of the main changes is that instead of applications being dealt with in Madrid, they are now to be handled in Belfast and it is there that applications are to be sent. Many people probably use the services of an agent to facilitate their applications, and those agents no doubt will be aware of this change themselves, but it is as well to be aware of it "just in case".

You can read full details of the announcement of the change in the British Government website here.

Incidentally, another change taking place, effective Tuesday 14th May 2013, is that the British Consulate in Alicante is moving premises to: British Consulate in Alicante, Edificio Espacio, Rambla Méndez Núñez 28-30, 6ta planta (6th floor), Alicante 03002. Telephone and fax numbers remain as before. Full details here.
