Important changes to notarial services in Alicante
21st November 2011
Avoid the queues in the Consulate in Alicante – a new appointment system for notarial work to be introduced in December 2011.
If you are thinking about getting married in Spain, importing your vehicle or need any other official certificate from the British Consulate in Alicante, please be aware that from 1st December 2011 this Consulate will be implementing an appointment system.
The appointment system will mean that you can avoid queuing and will ensure that the Consulate can deliver the service in a more customer-friendly and efficient manner.
Anyone who is planning to go to the Consulate in Alicante for a notarial service from 1st December onwards should ensure they make an appointment beforehand. At present, appointments can be booked by emailing the British Consulate in Alicante at Alicante.Consulate@fco.gov.uk with ‘Notarial appointment request’ in the subject area. An on-line appointment system will be introduced shortly. Those who do not have access to email can call the Consulate on 902 10 93 56 or send their request by fax on 965 14 05 28.
British Vice Consul, Lloyd Milen said, “This is an important improvement to the way we run notarial work whereby people will be able to book their appointments in advance which should give a more efficient service. This will also enable us to ensure customers have the correct documentation before they make the trip to Alicante.”
This will not affect applications for Emergency Passports, which will continue to be available from 08:30-13:30 from Mondays to Fridays without prior appointment.
A full list of notarial services and what supporting documents are required for each one can be found on the British Embassy website www.ukinspain.fco.gov.uk.
