    Spanish citizens residing abroad must register with the Consular Register corresponding to the district where they live.

  • Passport and Other Documents
    Documents that can be processed by Consulates are passports,  certificates of existence, Residency Certificates and Cancellations of Consular Registration Certificates.
  • Legalisations
    Legalisation is an administrative act whereby a foreign public document is validated, by verifying the authenticity of the signature on the document, and the capacity in which the signatory of the document has acted.
  • Other Consular Services
    Consular services can also perform notary functions, assist in searching for missing persons, and provide information regarding the transfer of bodies and mortal remains to Spain, issuance of criminal records certificates, renewal of driving licences, and online filing of Personal Income Tax and Wealth Tax returns.
