Residencia

Empadronamiento

Signing the “pardon” is very important both for you and the town you live in. You should register yourself as living at your home with the Town Hall for that district.

This money is essential for the towns upkeep and maintenance, schools, amenities, sports facilities and the future development of the town.

UK & European Passport renewals

Don’t leave it to the last minute to renew your passport and remember that many airlines will require you to have at least 6 months left on your passport to make it valid.
