The Population List gives the number of inhabitants in a municipality and is of great importance, since the economic contributions from the central and regional government to the Town Hall are based on the number of registered inhabitants in the town. These funds are to provide town services i.e. Local Police, doctors, schools, cleaning, lighting, infrastructure, etc. Therefore, the more registered inhabitants, the more money will be granted to the Town Hall for these services.
Foreigners living in Nerja for a minimum of 3 months should register on the List.
As well as receiving better services from the Town Hall, by registering you can benefit from the following:
Registering on the Population List has no relation with paying taxes or the Inland Revenue (Hacienda).
To register on the List, you only have to present yourself at the Foreigners Department of Nerja Town Hall (ground floor) with the following documents:
All foreigners must renew the Padron every 2 years.
If you move house, you must notify the List Registry of the Town Hall (ground floor) by submitting a receipt or contract that shows your name and new address.
If you move to another town in Spain and register on their list, that other Town Hall will inform Nerja directly so that we can deregister you from our list.
Registering on the Population List is free and you will obtain a certificate the following day.
"The foreign population is of great importance to the Local Governing Body. For this reason, through the Foreigners Department, we will continue in our efforts to encourage the integration of foreigners into our society and help everyone who has chosen to make Nerja their home. I remain at your disposal at Nerja Town Hall Foreigners Department. Kind regards"
