If you live Abroad
If You Are Abroad

This section includes services that could be useful for Spaniards residing abroad, and those who move their usual residence abroad.​

  • Your Consulate Can Help You: Register
    Spanish citizens residing abroad must register with the Consular Register corresponding to the district where they live.
  • Consular Assistance
    It is important to be aware of the consular assistance services that are available or not to detainees, as well as the assistance offered in situations of need.
  • Civil Registry
    Facts concerning the civil status of people and other situations determined by law are recorded in the Civil Register.
  • 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.
  • Participate in Elections
    Those Spaniards that habitually reside overseas and those that move their primary residence there must register as residents in the corresponding Consular Section Register (with jurisdiction in the place where the new residence is located).
