HI all
Just something to bear in mind should you be thinking of a holiday here in the future......over the next couple of months all UK consular assistance will be transferred to the Consulate on the mainland at Malaga(....only 1347km away)
So if you lose your passport...fall foul of the authorities....need assistance with problems....this is where you will have to go/deal with should you need the assistance of a British Consul.
You could write to your MP pointing out that one of the major holiday destinations will in effect be losing a necessary resource.....or you could just ignore the fact and hope you never need their facilities.

Is this to be the only consulate serving canaries, Balearics etc?
Definitely a point to consider when booking a holiday as I have had to use a consulate twice on the mainland (costa blanca).
Don't honestly believe that contacting mp would do any good whatsoever.

I had the misfortune in 2001 to need consular help. It was all done from Madrid.
