Consulate to give advice at Iceland stores this November

The British Consulate and the Alicante Healthcare Team will be at various Iceland stores across the Costa Blanca this November to give shoppers the chance to find out how the Consulate can help and check that they are properly registered for healthcare.

They will have a stand at the entrance to the stores in San Javier, Benidorm and Torrevieja with information about padrón, residencia, property, healthcare and how to keep in touch with the Embassy via social media.

The team will be in the following stores on the following days:

  • Iceland San Javier – Monday 3rd November from 11am-3pm
  • Iceland Benidorm – Wednesday 5th November from 11am-3pm
  • Iceland Torrevieja – Wednesday 12th November from 11am-3pm

British Vice Consul Lloyd Milen says:

We are really grateful to Iceland for giving us the opportunity to use their stores to talk to British nationals. I hope that as well as doing the weekly shop, Brits will have a chance to talk to us about what their concerns are and how we can help them. It’s also a chance for shoppers to check that they are registered for healthcare and get answers to any questions they may have about living in Spain. We hope to see you there!
