Spain has made some technological advances in the past few years with using digital databases to help process, solicit, and download legal documents. As a Language Assistant on a Student Visa you are entitled to use these services to help obtain the necessary documents for your time here in Madrid. Two of these services that can be accessed digitally are the CL@VE and the DIGITAL CERTIFICATE; these two platforms allow you to access documents such as your EMPADRONADO, DELITOS SEXUALES, SOCIAL SECURITY, IMMIGRATION, TAXES, and much more. With COVID limiting in person appointments at many government offices these two services can benefit you with saving time and possible exposure. Following these steps will help you move forward with your paperwork.
Working with children in Spain requires that you obtain a document called “DELITOS SEXUALES.” This document serves that you have no background or convictions of you working with children in Spain. Luckily this document is obtainable both in person by cita previa (appointment) or by online using the CL@VE portal. This document will have to be shared with your Language Assistance Program and your school for you to work with children. Please note that obtaining this document is free but can take some time for you to obtain it. There will be a deadline for submitting it to your school and program.
You have started the TIE Renewal paperwork and you are familiar with the timeline, but now you are wondering how to get back into Spain if you choose to travel or go home for the summer or even for the Holiday season. Check out below how to LEGALLY travel outside of of Spain and to ensure your rights of returning to Spain.
For those of you who still need to get your Certificado from the Spanish Government regarding your Background Check:
1. Arrive to Calle Bolsa 8. Near Sol
2. To the right of the door there is a column of papers; grab the one regarding the "Naturaleza Sexual"
3. Enter doors and pass through security
4. Grab a number from the touchscreen Kiosk regarding "Naturaleza Sexual"
5. Fill out paper and provide passport and copy
Probably the easiest process I've done here in Spain.
