3.Proof of identity
Once you have read the sections about getting ready and configuring your browser (Step 1) and completed your certificate application (Step 2), , you will be in possession of your application code. To continue, the applicant and future holder of the certificate must go in person to a Registration Office to prove his identity.
Were he unable to do so for any reason, a third person may go in his place, always provided that the signature has been authenticated by a notary public.
Documentation required to prove identity:
The certificate applicant must go to one of our Registration Offices with:
- Spanish citizen:
