Birth Marriage Death in Tenerife

birth marriage death in tenerife

If you are on holiday in Tenerife, there may be a remote chance that you'll encounter one of these situations. If, on the other hand, you have relocated to the island and have started up a new life there, then it's likely that you'll have to deal with at least one of these three situations, at some point.

My aim, on the pages linking from this one, will be to provide useful information on official procedures, paperwork required and possible help offered by the Consulate of your native country.


I personally have never had to deal with a situation involving a birth in Tenerife, but, after research, I'll be able to tell you such things as how to register the event, what the nationality of the newborn child will be and other such useful information.


As can be seen in one of the photos on my "About Me" page, I've attended a wedding in Tenerife, but never actually been involved to the extent of being a bridegroom (divorces being more my speciality - see "About Me" again).

The link takes you to a page detailing all the preparation and paperwork needed in the run-up to a wedding. In Spain, it can be quite complicated and, once again, your Consulate can help.


This unfortunate situation is something I have had personal experience of. Click the link for advice on the various procedures necessary, plus other information on such things as getting the body back to its home country, the potential situation of its being placed in a chapel of rest and the possibility that a post mortem may be performed.

This section, as well as discussing death through natural causes, also deals with the traumatic situation of death through accident or crime.
