If you want to apply for a fishing licence in person, you will need to visit the Valencia fishing offices. The “Comunidad Valenciana,” as it is referred to, includes the provinces of Valencia, Alicante, and Castellon. Getting an appointment online is only practical for Spaniards, and residents, because a Spanish ID number is needed for everything, on their government site. Remember to arrive early, because they will help you to fill the application form, and then give you the forms with the fees. Then, you need to run to to the bank, pay them, and come back. In the summer months, they get busy.
Valencia Fishing Offices: What to Take (Tourists, i.e. not Spanish citizens nor residents)
- Passport photocopy
- Some cash to pay the fees at the bank
- Extra time, arrive as early as you can. 9 in the morning is ideal
- Only for spearfishing: Spanish doctor’s certificate (original), stating that you’re fit enough to practice the sport.
