  • Obtaining a work permit
  • Contracting of protection and security services


The original document usually has to be legalised beforehand. In this case, the criminal record certificate is issued together with theHague Apostille to certify its authenticity and effectiveness before judicial bodies.

However, it is advisable to check the particular requirements with the organisation or administration requesting the sworn translation of a criminal record. It is important to know in advance if the Hague Apostille must be added before any sworn translation is made, as it must also be translated.

These sworn translations must be translated by translators appointed by the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs to guarantee their veracity and legality before any official body.

These must include the stamp and signature of the sworn translator appointed by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. They are therefore legally responsible for the accuracy of the content of the translation in relation to the original document.
