Spain Expat's helpful list of embassies and consulates for your home country and Spain. Includes American, Canadian, British, Irish, Australian, and Dutch embassies in Spain.

Embassies and Consulates can be your vital line to your home country, its government and its services. Depending on your location, you may only have access to a local consulate or, in some cases, a trade office. In many parts of Spain, including the north and south, you may have to travel quite far to reach the closest embassy or consulate for your country in Spain. Generally your embassy can be contacted by email or by phone however (and they recommend you do so upon arrival to register yourself and qualify for their assistance in the future).

(Skip down to your country’s list of embassies and consulates:

Embassies and Consulates of the USA in Spain
Embassies and Consulates of Canada in Spain
Embassies and Consulates of England in Spain
Embassies and Consulates of Ireland in Spain
Embassies and Consulates of Australia in Spain
Embassies and Consulates of The Netherlands in Spain

Embassy Services:

The following is a list of services generally offered by your embassy or consulate for citizens abroad:

  • Information for travelers and travel warnings about Spain
  • Emergency assistance for victims of crime, medical issues, deaths and traveler welfare

  • Reports of death and birth
