Foreigners who travel to Spain must register in the Consular Register of their country, corresponding to the demarcation in which they are domiciled. Registration will allow them to renew their documentation, to prove that they are resident abroad and to participate in the electoral processes that are called in their countries, among others, as well as to request consular assistance in situations of need.
To register you must contact the Consular Office in whose demarcation you reside, prove your residence, identity and Spanish nationality with the corresponding documentation. If you wish, we can arrange this service for you in order to speed it up and organize it as quickly as possible.
It is very important to keep in mind that if in the future a resident abroad changes his/her address, he/she must inform the Consulate, so that his/her registration will be permanently updated.
Foreigners who are temporarily in Spain are advised to register in the Consular Registry corresponding to the place where they are as “non-residents”. We also advise Spaniards or residents in Spain who travel to countries at risk of natural disasters or suffering political instability, to register, so that in case of activation of emergency programs, the corresponding consular office can contact all of them.
International students taking courses or traveling to Spain for a period of time are advised to register as “non-residents” at the corresponding Consulate.
Such registration will allow families to contact their relatives through the Consulate in case of need. It is also convenient to register in order to facilitate the replacement of the documentation in case of theft or loss of the passport, since the Consulate has all the elements to be able to document those who have been victims of passport theft (in this case, the theft or loss of the passport must always be reported to the local police of the country where the person is).
With his registration as a non-resident, the citizen can vote by mail in the different electoral processes.
Foreigners leaving their residence in Spain to another place abroad can request their cancellation in the Consular Registry. Upon arrival at their new place of residence, they must register in the Municipal Register or in the Consulate corresponding to their new domicile.
The Consular cancellation facilitates to the foreigners who return to establish their residence in their country of origin certain procedures in relation to the entrance in customs of their belongings, as well as of another type, reason why it is very useful to request it before finalizing their stay abroad. In addition, the certificate of the entire period of residence and registration in a consular jurisdiction serves as official proof of the entire time spent abroad.
