New Passport rules for Expats in Spain

Passport application rules have changed for British
Ex-pats in Spain and took effect on 13th May. All passport applications must be
sent to the Identity & Passport Service (IPS) in Belfast, United Kingdom.
Previously it was the regional processing hub in Madrid.

More info can be found here: www.gov.uk/overseas-passports

For general passport renewals, the processing times remain
the same and you should allow four weeks from the date they receive your
payment together with all the correct documentation. However for passport
replacements due to them being lost, damaged or stolen, you should allow at
least six weeks.

The telephone number for the IPS customer service in
Belfast is: 0044 (0) 300 222 0000.

If you need to travel urgently and you do not have your
passport, you can contact the British Consulate in Alicante. Tel: 965 21 60 22
or for more help go to www.gov.uk/world/spain

They may be able to issue an emergency travel document.

Please note the British Consulate in Alicante has a new
address, just in case you use an old sat nav destination!  The new address is:

British Consulate in Alicante

Edificio Espacio,


Rambla Mendez Nunez
28-30,


6ta planta (6th floor)


Alicante 03002.
