BRITISH nationals who live in the Alicante province can get next day residency appointments in Alicante city by selecting the option POLICIA – CERTIFICADO UE (EXCLUSIVAMENTE PARA REINO UNIDO). The local authorities in Alicante have informed the British Embassy in Madrid that they open up appointments on a daily basis and that there is quite a lot of availability each day.
An Embassy spokesperson said: “We want to encourage anyone who hasn’t yet applied for residency to do so, and to take advantage of the additional appointments. As appointments are opened up each day, if there are none left when you check, there will be more the following day.”
