What is the PERE?

The Register of Spaniards Resident Abroad (PERE) is the national file that contains the registrations of those persons who, having Spanish nationality, regularly live outside of Spain, whether or not this is their only nationality. It is constituted from the data existing in the Registers of residents in the Consular Offices abroad.

For the compilation and maintenance of the national PERE file, each month, the Consular Offices or Sections submit to the National Statistics Institute, through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the registrations, cancellations and modifications that have occurred in the data corresponding to the Registers. The coordination is carried out jointly with the data corresponding to the registrations of those Spaniards resident in Spain.

What data does the PERE contain?

The registration, in the Register, of Spaniards resident abroad, contains the following data: Given name and surnames, sex, place and date of birth, number of national identity document or passport, certificate or school or academic qualification, place of residence in the country of residence and municipality of registration in Spain for electoral purposes, in addition to the date of registration therein.

How can I query the PERE?

Any interested party that can identify themselves electronically by means of a Cl@ve system may electronically query the registration data in the national PERE file. Information will not be provided when the identity data of the Cl@ve system does not coincide with that of the registration in the PERE.

Who may query the PERE?

Any interested person who is registered as a resident in the Consular Register corresponding to the consular demarkation in which s/he regularly resides.

What data will the query show?

The result of the query will show the registration data corresponding to the latest available variation, as well as the date of registration in the national PERE file. This information is presented on the screen and may be printed.

Where should I request the registration or modification of the data?

The compilation, maintenance, revision and safekeeping of the Consular Register correspond to the Consular offices, and as may be the case, of the Consular sections of the Diplomatic Missions of Spain. For this reason, the request for registration in the Consular Register corresponding to the consular demarkation in which one regularly resides, or the modification of the registration data, in the case of not being updated or being erroneous, should be submitted at the Consular Office corresponding to the person's regular residence, bearing in mind that if s/he has recently carried out any of this paperwork in her/his Consular Office, the national PERE file presents an updating lag of two months.
