Instructions: How to obtain your digital signature in Spain

In order to be able to act online with public authorities in Spain, it is mandatory to have a digital authentication option, e.g. an electronic signature. An electronic signature is like a digital ID card that you can use to sign online and clearly prove who you are.

This PDF guide explains step-by-step in pictures and text, completely in English, how to apply for such an electronic signature. With the help of numerous screenshots and practical tips, the user is guided through the entire process, including step-by-step instructions on how to make an appointment with the tax office or social security.   This guide is therefore suitable for anyone who is either in Spain or abroad and wants to apply for his/her electronic signature on his/her own.
