Updated 8 August: There has been some controversy over recent weeks about police appointments for residency appointments, with claims that the police had stopped giving them entirely to British nationals. This is simply incorrect. Appointments are still being given but it is August, and staffing levels are affecting availability … and during a busy and under-staffed time, they are facing a rush of applicants who, to be blunt, have left a procedure that has been a legal requirement since 2012 until the last few months before Brexit.

Appointments can be obtained online HERE: there is an option exclusively for British nationals in the drop down box headed Trámites disponibles for your province. Currently, there are very few if any appointments available with that option for August at Playa de las Américas but it might be possible to arrange an appointment by booking via the Policia Certificados UE option in the drop down box. I’m grateful to Deepika Harjani of the British Consulate in Tenerife for helping with this information.

Finally, anyone who missed the Ambassador’s online Brexit Q&A can see the recording here:
