What is the Spanish General Access Point?


Audio in Spanish. Spanish and English subtitles available.

  • Why was the General Access Point created?

    The Spanish General Access Point (SGAP) was established as a single access point, through the Internet, for citizens to Public Administrations, with the aim of trying to solve the problem of the existance of scattered information provided by Public Administrations on different portals and web pages, as well as duplicated information and lack of adequate coordination, which was hindering the access of citizens to procedures and services. 

  • What is the Spanish General Access Point (SGAP)?

    The Spanish General Access Point (SGAP) is a web portal of the State Administration whose url is: https://administracion.gob.es .

    As a single point of access it allows citizens to access horizontal information of Ministries and its linked or dependent public bodies, as well as information on public employment, aids, grants, scholarships, and regulations of interest of Spanish Public Administrations and of the EU.

    It gives access to the official websites of ministries, autonomous bodies, Autonomous Communities, Local Entities, as well as to their electronic offices.

    In addition, it offers both citizens and companies access to procedures and electronic services of Public Administrations gathered by subjects, as well as to information on the functioning and organization of Public Administrations and the Spanish State.

    This portal has also customized assistance services: a citizen mailbox and an online webchat. Other contact channels are: 060 telephone and social networks.

    Besides the SGAP has a restricted area for users, which is accessed after authentication (electronic identification), called Citizen Folder, at which citizens can access their personal data, the status of their administrative records, their notifications, etc.
