20.12.2015 - After years of promising to do away with the onerous formality, which invariably necessitates hours of queuing with a days-old baby in arms, the Spanish Ministry of Justice has at long last taken steps to facilitate life for new parents and is allowing the registrations to be completed online by hospitals. The Maternity Hospital in Las Palmas is one of a number at national level selected for the pilot project, which has been warmly welcomed by the public even if criticised due to the repeated delays in getting it up and running.

Online registration of births and deaths is already possible in a small number of hospitals in the Canaries and will gradually be extended to cover every hospital, both public and private in the Islands.
