You can now carry out official transactions on the Internet, filing your tax return, dealing with traffic fines, Social Security, land registry, etc by using a new Electronic certificate.

The Electronic certificate is an online proof of identity and can be obtained from the town hall. Signing digitally carries the same validity as an original signature in ink, although you will need a good command of Spanish to use the system.

You don’t even need a computer to use the service as there is free public Internet access using the new Telecentre Network with access points in Puerto de Santiago, Santiago del Teide, Valle Arriba, Tamaimo, El Molledo, Las Manchas and Arguayo.

For more information and registration contact the town hall.
