Today, I attended my national British consulate office in Bucharest, Romania. I am here for 5 weeks on vacation. About 10 days ago, I had my passport and all of my money stolen from me. After visiting there last week, I returned as advised to with every inkling of paper work required, and the police report. I am due to return home in 2 weeks.
The consulate talked over me at the same time as I was talking to them. They continued to ask multiple questions, but upon an attempt to answer them if I got that far, they continued to talk over my replies. Subsequently, and I can not really figure what I did wrong, the consulate said to me that "they have the right to refuse" to serve me, and that "if I continued in the" way I had done there today, they could impose this. The difficulty was caused over no less than money. Of course, and they would know about such matters. I did not have enough to pay them as I'd been robbed. I left the consulate to go to the ATM and had to return with the same amount of money available. I have not yet been able to collect emergency travel documents.
My question is about a consular office refusing to serve at all. If they had stuck to that and they're the only one in Romania, which is in the EU. My home country is United Kingdom. I have previously visited USA for up to 90 days 3 times close to each other in the last few years. If I was in a country like USA or non-EU and the Consulate offices refuse to serve me in this situation, in the whole of their country, what should I do? Remain illegally, or tell police that I could soon be illegally there, or do what? One cannot stay in a non-EU country without the correct passport, paperwork or access to getting emergency documents. Would I be completely stuck, or have to travel to another country? Can they refuse to serve me at all, and ongoingly, as how could they? I would be abroad endlessly then forever and stuck?
