Information for foreigners

Due to the alarm status, the immigration formalities have been paralyzed and the immigration office has been closed temporarily. Some of the procedures can still be done online by processing a digital certificate.

The immigrant orienting and counseling service (Servei d’Orientació i Assessorament a Persones Immigrades, SOAPI) and Family Regrouping (Reagrupament Familiar) are still active online, guaranteeing the attention of users. We ask professionals to use email as the main way of contact, in order to avoid saturating mobile phones.
