We maintain and develop relations between the UK and Spain. The British Consulate in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria provides services to British nationals living in and visiting Gran Canaria, Lanzarote and Fuerteventura.

You can access UK government services while in Spain.

Urgent assistance

If you’re in Gran Canaria, Lanzarote or Fuerteventura and you need urgent help (for example, you’ve been attacked, arrested or someone has died), call +34 928 26 25 08. If you’re in the UK and worried about a British national in Spain, call 020 7008 1500.

Get an emergency travel document

You can apply for an emergency travel document if you’re abroad and your passport has been lost or stolen, damaged or expired, and you can’t get a new or replacement passport in time to travel.

If you are due to travel in the next 24 hours, contact us as soon as possible.

If you are travelling in the next week and your passport is not available, you may be able to apply for an emergency travel document. You can apply online and then go to your nearest consulate and normally obtain an emergency travel document on the same day. You must bring your travel details for all applications plus proof of your address in Spain if the emergency travel document is for a round trip. You should arrive at the consulate at least an hour before the scheduled closing time.

Apply online for an emergency travel document if you:

  • are over 16 years old and
  • are a British citizen and
  • have previously owned a British passport

Contact us to apply for an emergency travel document if you are:

  • over 16 years old but have not owned a British passport before or
  • not a British citizen or
  • applying for a child under 16 years old

Once you have contacted us, you will be advised to make an appointment to apply for an emergency travel document at the British Consulate Las Palmas.
