of the country who emitted this paper, except for very special cases
as Bolivia and Peru. (please, See Agreements).
3 - Evident documentation. To prove the
requirements related to the diferents applications, it is asked a lot of
requeriments, but as a general pointview the key is to understand that

actual operation of a company, etc... will be not accepted as
appropriate documentation and to suppose the opposite will generate
