Hi all,

We are moving over at the weekend and my baby is due September. I will be having baby at Marbella Hospital and wondered where I register the baby's birth to get the birth certificate and apply for baby's passport (British). Any help would be really appreciated.

Thanks.  Sarah

British Embassy states here the following:

The birth may be registered at the Civil Register Office nearest to the place of birth or residence, by one of the child's parents. This should be done in the first 8 days following the child's birth. However, this period can be extended to 30 calendar days if there is a justified reason for the delay. If you miss this time limit with the Spanish authorities, you may have problems getting the birth registered. You also may have to start an administration procedure with the Spanish authorities which will be long and expensive. This can affect your child's access to state health, nursery or school.

Also check out this thread (the last couple of pages should explain the situation) - you will see some of the problems Vicci is facing for, unfortunately, being a few days late registering her child. 

Maybe someone can tell you where the nearest Civil Register Office is to where you will be living (I think you may be in the Manilva area?).

Just make sure  you register the birth within the 30 days.

Our Baby was born at the CDS Hospital but had heart and lung problems and was in intensive care for 3 weeks.

We were so worried that we didnt ask about registering the birth and when we did we had missed the 30 days.

I can only say the next 12 months were a nightmare with numerous visits to the courts in Fuengirola and Marbella.

We actuualy had one visit to the courts in Fuengirola for a court doctor to check what sex the baby was.
Something I found very wierd and a bit creepy!

It took us just over 14 months to finally get the birth certificate and at times it felt like Franco was still in power.

So whatever you do do it within 30 days!

There's another very interesting thread on this form with one person going through this very problem.
