Consul General


Message from the Consul General​

Welcome to the website of the Consulate General of Spain in Edinburgh.
This website has an essentially practical vocation. It is conceived as a useful tool for Spaniards who reside in this region or are just visiting it, as well as for those who are interested in our country or who intend to travel to it soon. 
Here you will find a wealth of information about the services we provide at this Consulate General, as well as indications on how to contact us, initiate and follow up on administrative procedures. 

There is also information and links about life and work in the main cities of this demarcation, which we hope will be useful in particular to those who are in the process of settling there. Through social networks, we will publish updates and echo news of interest.

In short, this page belongs to all of you: it hopes to facilitate the day-to-day life of its users, in the context of increasingly rich and dynamic relationships. Do not hesitate to contact us to help us improve it.

All the members of the team of the Consulate General of Spain in Edinburgh are at your disposal.
