EVERY EFFORT: Councillor Lucas Mayo and the tourist office are helping and advising foreign residents and non-residents during the crisis CREDIT: Ayuntamiento de Mojacar

MOJACAR council’s Foreigners’ councillor Lucas Mayo and the municipal tourist office are providing information for British citizens who want to get back to the UK via France on the necessary requirements allowing them to make the trip under the lockdown restrictions, whether they are residents or in the area temporarily.

They strongly recommend that anyone planning to drive to Britain or who would have to use French ports, stations or airports should keep updated on the changing situation before setting out and should be aware of the Spanish state of emergency regulations. Also that they should contact the British Embassy to confirm the requirements in order to travel and what has to be carried en route at all times to avoid being fined.

They also stress that people should have everything justifying their journey immediately to hand, like ID, train or ferry tickets.

Lucas Mayo and the tourist office are making every effort to help and advise residents and non-residents from other countries who may not speak Spanish and do not have full access to the information and mandatory regulations in place during this coronavirus pandemic.

As all municipal offices are closed to the public, contact can be made either by phone on 950 472 531 or by email at [email protected] for anyone seeking advice, requesting help or finding out about the assistance provided by the volunteer service.

Lucas also has the number 674 784 191 open to residents in order to advise and attend to the needs of the town’s foreign population.
