The procedure to obtain the digital certificate in Spain is relatively simple.
To obtain the Spanish digital certificate we first need to access the page of the Fábrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre, FNMT (Royal Spanish Mint), where we will request the certificate as a natural person.
Once requested, we will receive a number in the email we have provided.
You will have to go in person to any public body that provides this service and bring your original passport or identity card along with the number that the Fábrica Nacional de Moneda y Timbre FNMT (Royal Spanish Mint) has given you. They will identify you with your passport or identity card and issue the certificate that you will receive in the e-mail you have provided. If you are not Spanish, you will need to show a copy of your NIE certificate (identification number for foreigners).
You can now download the certificate. Very important, it must be done always from the same computer from which you requested it.
