VENTANILLA ÚNICA Dealing with government bureaucracy has traditionally been a complicated matter in Spain. Obtaining permits, passports and other documents could involve numerous visits to different offices (or even towns), and take a lot of time and effort. The ventanilla única (literally “single window”) initiative has been introduced to improve this situation. By ensuring that information from local, regional and national government levels is available in the same place, the system is also intended to improve communication between government and the public.
