Guidance

Notarial and documentary services guide for Spain

Documents, certificates, letters and notes available at British consulates in Spain.

Overview

British consulates in Spain issue a wide range of legal documents for British nationals. An appointment must be made for each service.

If there is no specific formal requirement for a notarial service or certificate to be provided by the British consulate, Spanish notaries or lawyers in Spain can sometimes provide these services more conveniently, quickly and cheaply.

It is essential to check with the relevant authority (town hall/registry office/tax authorities/foreigners office, etc) either in the UK, Spain or a third country, whether the consular certificate or service will be accepted. Only the relevant authority can confirm which service you will require. This information cannot be verified by the British consulate.

Fees for consular certificates and documents are paid at the consulate on the day of the appointment and can be paid by credit card, debit card or in cash. Refunds will not be given for certificates or notarial services that are not accepted by the requesting authority.

If you cannot find what you are looking for in the list below please see the our services section at the British Embassy Madrid or see the list of services provided elsewhere.

Proof of address and identity

In addition to proof of identity which is usually a British passport, proof of current address is always required for the issue of all consular certificates, informative notes, letters and notarial acts. The Spanish Civil Registry may ask you to provide proof of your current and/or previous address in Spain (or elsewhere) for the last two years. If you are resident in Spain you should have a Spanish Residence Certificate and a Town Hall Registration Certificate which details your current address in Spain.

Spanish Residence Certificate (Certificado de Registro de Ciudadano de la Unión)

A Spanish Residence Certificate is a green-coloured document which includes your full name, date and place of birth, NIE number (Número de Identificación de Extranjero), nationality, and address. It also states the date you became a permanent resident (Residente Comunitario).

Town Hall Registration Certificate (Certificado de Empadronamiento or Padrón)

If you have not been registered at an address with the local Spanish town hall ‘empadronado’ and cannot provide this document, or if you have not been resident in Spain for some or all of the time they require you to prove, (normally the last two years) please look at the services Proof of address for marriage and Transfer of address.

In the absence of either of these documents, you will be expected to provide proof of your current and/or previous address(es), by submitting recent and original copies of one of the following documents or Spanish equivalent listed below:

  • utility bills (not ones printed off the internet)
  • bank/building society/credit card statement (but not ones printed off the internet)
  • building society/savings bank passbook
  • electoral role confirmation letter
  • mortgage statement
  • council tax demand
  • credit reference agency search
  • recent evidence of entitlement to state or local authority-funded benefit, tax credit, pension, educational or other grant

Marriage in the UK

British consulates do not issue marriage documents for British nationals resident in Spain who wish to get married in the UK, please visit www.gov.uk.

The following information is for British nationals resident in Spain who are getting married in Spain.

Certificate of No Impediment

Certificado de No Impedimento

Fee 10 and Fee 11(ii). These fees are charged per person so if you and your partner are both British, you will have to make two separate applications.

Only the authority where you are going to present your final paperwork can confirm whether you require the Certificate of No Impediment CNI. This information cannot be verified by the British consulate.

To obtain a CNI you must first publish a Notice of Marriage (publish your banns or “Publicación de Edictos”) for 21 days. If no impediment is shown within those 21 days, a CNI will be issued.

On the appointment request form you are given the option to have the issued CNI sent by registered post to your current address or collected from your nearest British consulate. You can also authorise a person by written confirmation that they may collect the CNI on your behalf.

The CNI may also be required for same-sex marriage.

To obtain a CNI will depend on the individual’s circumstances, for example where you reside and where you are getting married. Please read the four scenarios below before submitting your application:

Scenario One

British national resident in Spain and getting married in Spain

If you are resident in one area of Spain but are getting married in another, you need to make your application at the British consulate closest to where you reside. Before you apply you must have been resident in the area of the consulate for at least 21 days. If no Impediment is shown from your Notice of Marriage (NOM), your CNI will be issued by the British consulate in the area where you are to marry.

Scenario Two

British national resident in Spain but getting married in a 3rd country, not the UK or Spain

If you are resident in Spain but getting married in another country (not the UK) you may also need to publish a NOM at the British consulate nearest to where you reside in Spain. If no impediment is shown the CNI will be issued by the British consulate in the country of where you intend to marry.

See the information on getting married abroad to confirm what documents are required in the country where you hope to get married.

Scenario Three

British national not resident in Spain or the UK but getting married in Spain

If you are not resident in Spain or the UK but you intend to get married in Spain, your future spouse (who will usually be resident in Spain or a Spanish national) must ask the Spanish civil registry which documents you need.

If you are asked by the Spanish civil registry to provide a CNI, please visit the notarial information for the British embassy or high commission in your country of residence for information on giving a Notice of Marriage (NOM) where you reside (for a marriage in Spain).

You will usually be expected to publish your NOM at your nearest British consulate in your country of residence. If no impediment is shown, the CNI will be issued in Spanish by the British consulate in Spain located in the same area as the civil registry. The British Consulate in your country of residence will forward all the paperwork to the British consulate where your CNI will be issued.

Scenario Four

British national resident in the UK but getting married in Spain

If you are resident in the UK but you intend to get married in Spain, your future spouse (who will usually be resident in Spain or a Spanish national) must make enquiries with the nearest Spanish civil registry as to which documents you will be required to provide. If you are asked by the Spanish civil registry to provide a CNI you will be required to publish your Notice of Marriage in the UK.

If no impediment is shown, you will be required to exchange your original Notice of Marriage issued in the UK for a CNI issued in Spanish by the British consulate in the same area where the civil registry is located.

British consulates do not issue marriage documents for British nationals resident in Spain who wish to get married in the UK, please see the information on getting married in the UK.

Proof of address for Marriage

Confirmación de domicilio para casarse en España

Marital status certificate for pareja de hecho /other

Certificado de Estado civil para pareja/unión de hecho

At present a consular certificate is not required to register a Pareja/Unión de Hecho in the Andalucía region or the Balearics.

If you are in Andalucía and wish to register a Pareja/Unión de Hecho, the British Consulate has been informed by the Junta de Andalucía that the following documents may be required, depending on your marital status:

  • your long form birth certificate, translated and legalised
  • if you are single, a No Trace Certificate from the General Register Office in either England and Wales, Northern Ireland or Scotland, translated and legalised
  • if you are divorced, your decree absolute (sentencia firme), translated and legalised
  • if you are widowed, your marriage certificate and the death certificate of your late spouse or partner, translated and legalised
  • a sworn declaration confirming your current marital status (single, divorced or widowed), drawn up by a Notary Public

If you are in the Balearics and wish to register a Pareja/Unión de Hecho, the British Consulate has been informed by the Conselleria de Salur, Familia i Benestar Social that you may be required to submit the documents listed above, except for the sworn declaration.

The British Consulate cannot provide definitive information on the requirements; therefore it is essential that you check with the relevant authorities in Andalucía or the Balearics.

Fee 4 and Fee 2(ii). These fees are charged per person so if you and your partner are both British, you will have to make two separate applications.

This certificate is also known as a Certificado de estado civil but is used to register a Pareja/Unión de Hecho (cohabitation registration) and sometimes to claim Spanish benefits.

If your partner is a non-EU national, he/she may need to submit a second copy of your marital status certificate to the Spanish Foreigners Office in order to obtain a Spanish residence card. It is recommended that you seek advice from the Foreigners Office (Extranjería) before making your application at the consulate, so if necessary, you can be issued with two copies of the consular certificate on the day of your appointment.

The documents required:

  • a fully completed appointment request form - marital status pareja de hecho (MS Word Document, 51KB)
  • your original valid British passport
  • your Certificado de Empadronamiento (town hall registration certificate) or original, valid Spanish Residence Certificate (the green document which bears your NIE number and your address)
  • your birth certificate which shows your parents’ details which must be included in the consular certificate (long form birth certificate)
  • an unsigned declaration in either English or Spanish drawn up by a Spanish abogado or a solicitor. The unsigned declaration will confirm your current marital status and will be affirmed /sworn and signed by you at the consulate on the day of your appointment. The text of the declaration should be printed out on the lawyer’s headed notepaper or be accompanied by a letter from the lawyer. Instructions on the content required in the declaration are provided in English and Spanish
  • if you have been married before, your original decree absolute (Sentencia firme)
  • if you have previously registered a civil partnership, your certificate of dissolution/annulment of your previous civil partnership or same-sex marriage
  • if you are widowed or the surviving partner of a civil partnership, the original death certificate of your late spouse or partner

If any of your documents are not issued in the UK or Spain, consular staff may need to make further enquiries. Documents that are not provided in English or Spanish will have to be translated into Spanish.

How to apply

Follow the instructions on how to book an appointment for a notarial act or certificate.

Recognition of a foreign marriage

For marriages celebrated outside of Spain or the UK

Fee 2(ii), Fee 4 x 2 and Fee 7. These fees are charged per person so if you and your partner are both British, you will have to make two separate applications.

If your marriage took place in a country other than Spain or the United Kingdom and your spouse is a non EU national, you may need to apply for this certificate and submit it to The Spanish Foreigners’ Office (Extranjería) in order to obtain a Spanish Residence Certificate.

It is not possible to register foreign marriages in the United Kingdom or in British consulates/Embassies abroad. Therefore, the Spanish authorities require your foreign marriage to be recognised with the British authorities as part of your spouse’s application for Spanish residency. As a result British consulates issue this certificate, which covers this requirement.

The Spanish Foreigners’ Office (Extranjería) will usually require your marriage certificate to have been both issued and legalised in the last three months. You need to check with your local Spanish Foreigners Office as to whether a certificate older than three months, but legalised in the last three months, would be acceptable. You must do this before applying for your consular certificate. To obtain the certificate both you and your spouse will have to attend the appointment at the consulate and make separate declarations.

The documents required:

  • a fully completed appointment request form - recognition of foreign marriage (MS Word Document, 28.5KB)
  • your original valid British passport
  • your Certificado de Empadronamiento (town hall registration certificate)
  • your original, valid Spanish Police Residence Certificate (green document which bears your NIE number and your address)
  • your spouse’s original valid passport
  • your original marriage certificate issued and legalised in the last three months (see Legalisation, Hague/Non Hague Convention countries below)
  • official translation into Spanish of your marriage certificate (see information below)

If any of your documents are not issued in the UK or Spain, consular staff may need to make further enquiries. Documents that are not provided in English or Spanish will have to be translated into Spanish.

Legalisation

For information on how to legalise your marriage certificate, you should contact the consulate/embassy in Spain of the country where the marriage took place.

Hague Convention countries

The Hague Convention refers to an agreement between certain countries who have decided to recognise each other’s documents. If the country where you married is part of the Hague Convention, the Legalisation office in that country will place a stamp or vignette called “The Hague Apostille” (Apostilla de la Haya) on the back of the document.

Non Hague Convention countries

If the country where you married has not signed the Hague Convention, there are three steps you will need to take to legalise your marriage certificate. The marriage certificate will have to be signed by various authorities in both the country of marriage and in Spain.

  1. contact the authority where your marriage was registered and obtain the relevant stamp or signature that will validate your marriage certificate
  2. take your marriage certificate to the Spanish Embassy in the same country so they can recognise the stamp/signature of the issuing authority
  3. submit your marriage certificate to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Legalisation department Ministerio de Asuntos Exteriores y Cooperacion, (departamento de legalizaciones) in order to recognise the stamp/signature of the Spanish Embassy from the country of marriage

Translations

We understand the following types of translations in Spanish are usually accepted by Spanish Foreigners’ Office (Extranjería):

  • by sworn translator - see the list of Interpretes Jurados
  • by the consulate or embassy in Spain of the country where the marriage took place
  • by a translator in the country where the marriage took place, as long as the translation has been certified by the consulate/embassy in Spain of that same country

How to apply

Follow the instructions on how to book an appointment for a notarial act or certificate.

Adoption by British nationals resident in Spain

Certificados consulares sobre la adopción para nacionales británicos residentes en España

Fee 2(ii) These fees are charged per person so if you and your partner are both British, you will have to make two separate applications.

British nationals resident in Spain, who wish to adopt a child from another country, may be required to obtain a certificate from the UK authorities recognising the adoption in the UK and confirming whether the adopted child will be granted British nationality.

There are two versions of this letter depending on whether the adoption is being processed:

  • under Spanish law (Spain as a “designated country”)
  • under the law of the country where the child is being adopted and whether that country is a “designated country”

Before applying for one of the two certificates, it is important that you visit these websites:

The documents required:

  • a fully completed appointment request form - adoption (MS Word Document, 26.7KB)
  • your original valid British passport
  • your original, valid Spanish Police Residence Certificate (green document which bears your NIE number and your address) or your Certificado de empadronamiento (town hall registration certificate)
  • an original declaration, sworn before a Spanish notary or a lawyer empowered to administer oaths, that you have sought independent legal advice on your status under UK law and which confirms that you are no longer habitually resident in the UK. The declaration needs to include the following text:

I confirm that I have received independent legal advice and, with reference to all the circumstances of my particular case and in the light of existing United Kingdom law, I can confirm that I am no longer habitually resident in the British Isles/United Kingdom.

Please refer to the list of English-speaking lawyers in your consular area for advice.

If any of your documents are not issued in the UK or Spain, consular staff may need to make further enquiries. Documents that are not provided in English or Spanish will have to be translated into Spanish.

How to apply

Follow the instructions on how to book an appointment for a notarial act or certificate.

Transfer of address

For importation of vehicles /change of registration plates/household goods (Baja/Alta Consular)

As of 18/11/2013, British consulates in Spain will no longer issue the Consular Letter: Transfer of Address for importation of vehicles/household goods/change of registration plates (also known as the Baja Consular).

We have been informed by the Spanish Agencia Tributaria that the following documents could be accepted as proof of residence, in place of the consular letter:

  • work contract or proof of self-employment
  • if you are coming from outside the UK, a residence permit or work permit for the country you have been residing in

If you do not have either of these documents, the Agencia Tributaria has said that they could accept any document that could serve as legally admissible proof. We understand that the final decision on the acceptability of any document lies with the tax authorities, who will assess each case individually. Any document not in Spanish must be translated and legalised in the UK or country of origin.

For further information, please contact the Agencia Estatal de Administración Tributaria/AEAT, the Spanish state tax administration agency.

If the tax authorities continue to ask you for a letter from the consulate, you can print out the document below which quotes the relevant information from their website and states that other documents may be submitted in place of the Baja Consular.

Baja Consular letter

Birth registration

The “Register a birth abroad” page is currently being amended.

You should therefore send your application by registered post to the British Consulate General, Torre Espacio, Paseo de la Castellana 259D, 28046 Madrid.
