However, banks could request other documents according to the product you might be willing to contract.

Attending to the closest Police Station (preferrable in big cities since you’ll find them easier) or the Foreign Office with your passport and the relevant forms. Then, you usually pay a fee.
If you are aborad, you could also go to a Spanish Consultate in order to get the certificate, which tends to take areound a week to be issued.
