What documents will I receive

The first document you will receive is the interview diligencia, which certifies that you already have an appointment with the OAR to start the asylum claim process.

Once you have completed your interview at the OAR, you will receive a white document containing your personal details and photograph and certifying that you are entitled to remain in Spain until a decision is made over the need for your asylum application to be examined here. As soon as your application has been accepted, you will receive a red document, which will be valid and renewable for 3 to 6 months. Once this 6-month period is over, you will receive a permit to work in Spain.

Applicants for stateless status will receive a green document bearing their photo and foreign resident ID number (NIE), but they will not receive a work permit.
