This service will allow customers to book their appointments from the comfort of their own homes at any time of the day and receive immediate confirmation. Customers still can come without appointment during March .However from the 01st of April 2014 customers will be required to book their Appointments online in advance .

The aim of this initiative is to provide more timely consular services to our customers, preventing them from having to spend lengthy periods of time at the Consular Section. Customers who have an appointment will be seen at that time, and receive the service which they require immediately.

More information about the service

Until now consular legalisation, notarial and documentary services have been carried out on an ad hoc basis. Customers arrive at the British Embassy during our public opening hours, and may have to wait some in order to complete the service that they require. Now to make things easier for all our customers we are introducing an appointment system. Appointments can be made on-line, and then you just arrive at the Embassy at your allocated time.

Access to the online appointment system is easy through this link. We also have easy to follow instructions available which you can view below

The registration part is extremely straightforward as only an email address and contact phone number is required. Then it is just a case of choosing the service required, clicking on the available day and time and clicking send. The confirmation email will come immediately and a reminder will be sent out at least 24 hours prior to the appointment. Customers can even save their appointment on their outlook calendar to keep things organised.

For customers who are not able to book online, or anyone wishing to come and see consular staff to discuss a consular assistance matter, it will still be possible to book an appointment by contacting us on +213 (0) 770 085 000.
