Moving to Madrid
Consular Registration

WHY MIGHT THIS BE USEFUL? 
Registering your family at your Consulate can be useful:

• If you need to renew identity documents (identity card, passports...).
If one of your children travels abroad alone (and is under 18 years old).
If you need a proxy to vote or any other notarial act (marriage, death, birth. certificate, etc). 

NECESSARY PAPERS 
Each Consulate has its own specific rules and we recommend that you call them in advance to know what documents you will need to bring. The following are usually required (no fee should be charged):
• Valid passport and Tarjeta de residencia;
• Birth certificate.
