Certificates

The consul can issue a certificate concerning the circumstances known to them (beyond any doubt) based on the state records of Estonia or official documents granted by Estonian authorities in the Estonian language, in order to prove different types of data to Spanish authorities.

For example, the certificates can be issued concerning marital capacity, possession of a driving license, possession or absence of real estate in Estonia, absence of citizenship etc. The solutions will depend on the requirements of the authorities that have requested the certificate and the underlying documents.

The certificates can be ordered by:
e-mail – the signed and scanned or digitally signed application should be sent to the e-mail address Embassy.Madrid@mfa.ee, along with other necessary documents
post – the signed application and other necessary documents should be sent to the address of the Embassy of Estonia in Madrid, Calle Claudio Coello, 91– 1° D, Madrid, 28006
at the embassy in person – you must make an appointment for the consular reception in the online system. In the Embassy, you can pay the state fee in cash or by debit card.

The certificate will be sent to you by post (to your personal address in Spain) or you can collect it in person.

Necessary documents to request a certificate:
• filled out and signed or digitally signed application
• the underlying documents in Estonian, if possible
• a copy of the page with personal data of the Estonian passport or ID card (if you are applying in person, take the document with you)
• a document that proves the payment of the state fee (30 euros)
