The British consulate had a Q & A session on facebook tonight and below is the link to the video. I haven't actually watched it all yet, but it does cover questions about the TIE

The first minute and a half is the guy in the top left fiddling about with the camera 😂

My dad was watching it I think, I’ll get him to summarise it as I’ve not got an attention span after 9pm!!!! Come to think of it I don’t think I’ve got an attention span after 7am! 🤦🏻‍♀️

They seemed to be very uncertain about many things which you would expect the Consular General and his staff to know.

Around 30 mins in, they were asked about whether or not you could take a translator, and they didn't know. They implied that it should be OK if you used one of the organisations recommended on the Gov.UK web site, but advised to ask the extranjería if an interpreter would be OK. The CG suggested there may be a problem with having extra people in the room during the covid situation.

The question about how much income is required was very wishy washy, and she wouldn't give a figure as it varied from province to province.

Yes it was all very vague it seems. 🤷🏻‍♀️
