Foreign Residents encouraged to register on the Padron in Spain
Local town halls have launched a campaign to persuade and remind residents to register the Padron.
But, what is the Padron and why do we need to register? The Padrón is a list of all the people who live in a certain town. Empadronarse is the act of registering yourself on this list with your local town hall and it is obligatory by Spanish law to register at the Town Hall where you habitually reside, yet many British ex-pats still have not done so. However, in reality, it is simply a way for the town hall to know how many people live in their area, without entering into investigations as to a person’s official residence status or financial affairs.
Once you’ve completed the simple process, you can begin to enjoy all the advantages being on the Padrón offers, such as: Better public services, Access to benefits and social care, a reduction in taxes, discounted travel, voting rights and overall, an easier life.
