Has anyone had to get a spanish police record check?

Hi everyone,

I'm English and the English police record check seems pretty simple and straight forward to do. But they ask for a record check for all the countries you have lived in for the last 10 years. Well I lived in Tenerife (Spain) for some of that time, so have to get a Spanish one done too. From what I can gather, I have to fill out a form, send a bank transfer for the fee and have a photocopy of my passport signed by the Spanish Embassy in London. The only tricky part is I don't know whether I need an appointment at the spanish embassy to get them to sign the photocopy or if I can just turn up? I've tried phoning several times and cannot get through. I was planning on going down to London in two weeks time, but I don't want to turn up and have a wasted journey.

Any advice/help would be much appreciated!

Hi Emma, for what I know you don't need appointment at the Spanish Consulate in London...You just need to turn up on opening hours! I'm a Spanish national.

Thanks very much for the reply! I managed to get through to the Spanish embassy today and they said the same. Thanks again!
