Hi there,
I have recently got a job in the UK but need to get a CBR check from Spain. As I lived in Malaga for the past six years. Does anybody know how I go about this ? As I'm totally lost.

Many thanks in advance

I don't think they have such a thing!
It's called a Certificado de Antecedentes Penales and you get it via the Ministerio de Justicia. Usually you can get it in person or even online. Since you are not resident in Spain anymore it's a bit more complicated, but doable (needs passport copies etc). Have a look at their website at Ministerio de Justicia

Most UK employers should have the means to do a CRB check on your behalf, by asking you to fill in a form providing details of your UK address and Spain address.
Have a look here....
Applying for a criminal records check : Directgov - Employment

However, in practice, not all employers are willing to do this.

As I work as a temp call centre operator when I'm in the UK, I have to provide my own up to date CRB check for the agency I work for and its a pain, but doable.
For the UK check, I use the link above.
For the Spain check, I usually apply in person at my local Civil Registry Office, as I can get the form immediately, but you can also apply by post or online.
By post it is supposed to take between 3 and 10 working days, but I don't entirely trust that.

Here are some links (in English) which may help

This is the link provided by Pesky, but this one is in english
Criminal Record Certificate - Personal formalities and procedures - Ministry of Justice

This is the link to find your nearest civil registry office to apply in person
Ministry of Justice - Addresses and telephone numbers
(that link is for the Malaga area by the way)

This is the link about how to make a postal application
Criminal Record Certificate - Personal formalities and procedures - Ministry of Justice

If you prefer these links in Spanish, just go to the link that Pesky posted and move on from there.


Hope that helps. :)

I require a criminal records certificate (I have been living in Spain for four years) and am travelling to the UK every month for three week nursing care allocations. Why is it that every link I click on for the ministerio de justicia, on here, and Google, says page cannot be found?

I have tried to ascertain whether the website has changed but cannot.

Any suggestions? Thanks... David

I can't get into them either.
Try this one to get the form. You can only do it on line if you have a digital signature anyway.

Not a spanish one they won't you have to supply it.
At the memnet from friday 22nd March until Monday 25th March the spanish system is offline .See here;

http://www.mjusticia.gob.es/cs/Satellite

You can normally fill-in online, then download & sign , take to bank & pay 3,62€ & take other two copies to the local office. Here in Murcia it's done while you wait.
For the care work in the UK you need to ensure that you tick box stating Hague Apostille which is what is required for the work.
For the UK crb normally the care company will apply on your behalf using the company office as an address if you do not have one.
Why is the UK CRB £150 & arrives in 10 days to a fortnight when the Spanish CRB is 3.62€ & is issued on the spot ?
