I have just found out that for my place at Oxford, I need to obtain equivalents of the CRB from Spain and France for the 5 months I spent in each country during my year abroad. I think I have successfully applied for the French one at : www.cjn.justice.gouv.fr. I filled in my details online and they emailed me a response and I had to attach a copy of my passport to it and email it back. The Extrait de Casier Judiciaire should arrive at my home address asap. Hopefully I've done that correctly. The Spanish one seems more complicated though. There's a small fee, a form called Modelo 790 to fill in and everything has to be sent in the post to Madrid. I have looked at the form and it asks for N.I.F which I think is some sort of tax number but as I only spent 5 months in Spain, I don't have one of these. It also asks for the D.N.I and I obviously don't have this as I'm not Spanish. Does anyone know if I should put my passport number or leave it blank> Also, should I put my National Insurance number in the N.I.F box or leave that blank> Will the application still be processed without these numbers> Also, I think that I can go into an English bank and pay the 3 euros something for the application and get the form stamped. Is that right> If someone has had a similar experience and understands all of this stuff - Please help!! Thanks.
