CONSULATE BUILDING: new, modern location will allow the team to better assist Britons.
THE British Consulate in Alicante is moving to new premises to improve the service to Britons needing help and advice.
From Tuesday, May 14 you can find the Consulate office in Edificio Espacio, sixth floor, on Rambla Mendez Nuñez, near the port area of Alicante, close to the Mercado tram stop and Alicante central bus station.
This is just a 10 minute walk from its current location in the Plaza Calvo Sotelo which has housed the consulate team since 1979. The move shows the importance in having a continuing consular presence to support the nearly 300,000 residents and 3.5 million tourists who visit the region each year.
British Consul, Paul Rodwell said: “The new Consulate will help us to assist better those who are most vulnerable, whilst offering an improved customer experience particularly in terms of access for those with reduced mobility.
“Furthermore, a new open plan office will deliver a better working environment for the team and the location means that those who need to find us can do so easily.”
The office will be open to the public from Mondays to Friday from 8.30am-2.30pm. The 965 216 022 phone number remains the same.
