Full Answer

The U.S. Embassy can intervene in the event of an emergency involving an American citizen in Spain. To contact the embassy staff for this purpose, individuals should call (34) 91-587-2200, as of 2015. If a U.S. citizen requires emergency assistance outside of normal embassy business hours, a Duty Officer is available to provide information on medical facilities, obtaining emergency funds from home or reporting crimes.

The embassy can also help getting an emergency passport issued to replace a lost or stolen one, but this is done during normal embassy hours only. The Duty Officer can be reached at the emergency contact number listed above. The embassy website also provides messages for U.S. citizens either planning on traveling to Spain or who are in Spain. Typically these messages involve security alerts. American citizens can also get information about traveling to Spain from the embassy website.

All services available to Americans by the U.S. Embassy in Spain are available on its website. The locations of the seven available consular offices in Spain providing services to U.S. citizens are the Madrid U.S. Embassy’s website.
