In simplest terms I just hope when help is needed that the Crete consular staff continue to step up as they have done gallantly for many years. I just don't know why visits to the Heraklion office except in an emergency should be restricted to just three days of the week? I found the previous arrangement for walk in traffic extremely convenient. Why should they want to stop that? Doesn't it defeat the new mission statement of the ambassador in Athens and his team at British Consulates around Greece, which says:
"the mission of the Consular services is to implement the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's (FCO) priorities for security, prosperity and protecting British citizens, strengthening the close ties between the UK and Greek Governments and the deep roots of friendship between the British and Greek peoples.
Get driving instructions if you do not have satnav or are using the bus to get to the Consulate you can check the location by our Directions to British Consulate.
