The Alicante consulate is located on the 6th floor of a building which has lift access. Wheelchairs fit into the lift but there is no additional space for the carer to accompany the wheelchair user. Wheelchair users who are concerned about how to access the consulate should call the consulate first to ensure they are given any additional assistance needed.
