Comunidad Valenciana


The Community of Valencia, Valencia Communidad, is a centre of commerce and trade as well as one of the key states in Spain. Diplomatic ties have thus been created with several countries and so representation is maintained in the city.

Diplomacy is generally centred on Spain’s capital so citizens of countries such as China, Japan, UK, and USA should contact their respective embassy in Madrid.

Nowadays, services to nationals in need are of lesser importance than in days of old while trade interests are at the forefront. The fact that people of many nationalities have been attracted to the region for decades has also influenced the consular landscape of the city.

Consulates General in Valencia include Bulgaria, Colombia, Dominican Republic, Ecuador, El Salvador, France, Hungary, Italy, Morocco, Panama, Peru,  Sierra Leone, Turkey and Uruguay.

Austria, Bolivia, Denmark, Lithuania, Sweden and Switzerland uphold Consulates in the city, while Honorary Consuls represent Belgium, Chile, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Latvia, Malta, The Netherlands and Mexico.

The Romanian Consulate is in Castellon and further diplomatic missions can be found in Alicante. These include UK, Icelandic and Brazilian Consulates, Italian and Costa Rican Consulates General plus the Irish and German Honorary Consulates.

Nowadays in Spain, people have warmed to humanity’s best friend and other pets. The Turia riverbed park is a marvellous, natural place for pets to stroll, play and interact with each other. Small areas are fenced off for dogs.


Airport getaway is very easy and quick because Manises airport is comfortably close to the city centre. The metro station for trains to Valencia is underneath the terminal. Take one escalator down from arrivals and two access departures.
