Documentation that must be presented: according to the type of authorization that is desired, we must carry some documents or others. All the information related to this can be found on the website of the General Secretariat of Immigration and Emigration.
If you need to apply for a long-term residence, we must comply with the general requirements specified in Organic Law 4/2000.

All we need is the valid passport and the residence permit.
