Spanish Consulate in Manchester to reopen due to Brexit
07 April 2019 @ 21:27

SPAIN will reopen its Consulate in Manchester in response to popular request from expats who are starting to panic about getting appointments in time to resolve their affairs before Brexit and to register to vote in the general elections on April 28.

National government spokeswoman Isabel Celaá says the office, which was closed in 2011, will once again serve the north and north-west of England, North and West Yorkshire, East Wales, the West Midlands, East and South Yorkshire and the Isle of Man, although not Cumbria, which is covered by the Consulate in Edinburgh - one of only two currently open along with London.

Since Manchester closed eight years ago, 'the number of Spaniards resident in the UK has grown considerably', says Sra Celaá.

"In light of the situation of an imminent Brexit, we need to reinforce Consular presence in the UK to offer legal security to Spaniards living there and help them with all the information and admin they require," she announced yesterday (Friday).
