More than 3,000 foreigners removed from Cartagena’s padron

MORE than 3,248 foreign residents have been taken off the municipal padron registry of Cartagena.

Although 2,320 foreigners registered during the past year, the community has seen a drop of almost 1,000 residents, as 39 per cent of them have been removed for a variety of reasons, according to council statistics.

In terms of nationalities, and compared to the data from previous years, the most dramatic decrease was caused by the departure of citizens from Ecuador, who numbered 4,287 in 2008, while in 2014 there were just 1,967 residents.

According to the institute, the reasons behind this drop are mainly to errors (982), and expiry date removal (800), which is caused when the foreign residents do not renew their inscription on the padron in a period of two years, as required by law.
