Since the government approved confinement restrictions due to the coronavirus, most administrative offices closed. This included suspending the right of citizens to make appointments or proceed with their applications for residency during the confinement period. Due to the necessity of this important procedure and with the intention of avoiding long queues and a backlog, the government have made provisions for those wishing to take out residency. 

The government and the General Council of Lawyers have signed an agreement to expand the procedures for immigration procedures to be carried out electronically. The agreement has been put in place to avoid the future queues and long waits for citizens making residency applications. 

The new system will enable lawyers registered with the College of Lawyers to present documents electronically in representation of third parties to the relevant administrations including the offices of “Extranjeria”. 

Once we have notification that this method has been approved, we will add an update.
