Types of Spanish Criminal Background Checks

Spanish authorities produce different criminal background checks.

Typically, this depends on whether the person is a Spanish or non-Spanish national.

Checks for non-Spanish nationals are usually accompanied by a country specific document.

A Hague Apostille is also quite frequent with all checks.

We are very familiar with all of these. 

As such, we provide each client with the perfect translation of their specific Spanish document.

New versions of the background check

There are now several versions of the Spanish Police Criminal Background Check.

A few years back Spanish authorities introduced a new DBS check.

This certificate is specific to people wanting to work with children.

Given that Spanish and British authorities tend to update and modify DBS checks, we are up to date on any new developments.

Consequently, our translation will always contain the correct terminology in English.

Increase in DBS check translations

We are receiving increasing requests for DBS translations.

This may be because more people are coming to Britain from Spain.

It may also be that people from Spain are applying for jobs where the DBS check is a requirement.

Another possibility is that a wider range of employment sectors now requests these background checks.

Whatever the reason, we are here to help.


It is also important to our clients that we offer very generous discounts.

We are very happy to provide clients with no obligation exact figures. 

Here is a guide to how we calculate fees:

One client:

  • DBS check
  • Accompanying document for non-Spanish nationals (where it be the case)
  • Hague Apostille (where it is the case)
  • Signed, stamped certifications for all of these documents.

For one client alone the full fee applies.

Nonetheless our fee is very reasonable.

Two clients together (perhaps spouses):

This might be spouses or two friends together.

The first client pays the full fee but we calculate a discount for the second client.

You then can decide together how you will pay.

If that second client has less documents, we will still offer a discount.

Three clients together:

Once again, we will offer discounts for all of the documents.

Sometimes a parent might ask us to translate documents for all the family.

In such a case we offer the best discount that we can

We look forward to providing you with a professional translation service at a very reasonable price.
