|Buzon Electronico|| |
So, if for example you have applied for a resident visa (correctly applied for a change of your immigration status) or an extension of your visa you should regularly check your Buzon Electronico as Migraciones will leave notifications there. These are considered to be officially delivered!
A notification could be the approval of your application – which means you can continue with the process, if necessary- but also could be a request to present / upload missing or additional documents. If you don’t respond or react within the timeframe given to you in the notification, your application is null and void; in the best-case scenario you only have to start the procedure from scratch, while in the worst case you could be expelled from the country.
Therefore, keep an eye on your Buzon Electronico. You can access it either through the Agencia Digital (on the top menu) or on the Migraciones-SINE website.
The username and password to enter can be found on the confirmation of your application (have a look on the second page or bottom). If the password is asterisked – which especially is the case when are in the process of extending your residence visa – check the confirmation you got when you first applied for your visa; otherwise just go to the Migraciones-SINE website, enter your username, and click on “Olvidaste la contraseña”. A new password will be send to you. Keep it safe!
Once you entered the Buzon Electronico click on “Casilla Electronica” and then choose “Notificaciones”. Your notifications will appear. Read them carefully, respond / react if necessary and best safe them somewhere.
