Petition Summary  

The petitioner complains that the Spanish authorities did not wish to acknowledge official documentation relating to his marriage as they were written in Danish and English. The petitioner states that the Spanish authorities are insisting that all the documents be translated into Spanish and certified by the Danish Consulate. The petitioner maintains that this is a failure on the part of the Spanish authorities to recognise and implement Regulation (EU) 2016/1191 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 6 July 2016 on promoting the free movement of citizens by simplifying the requirements for presenting certain public documents in the European Union.
