I think I know what the answer is going to be, but just to be on the safe side: is the credencial available through the Australian Friends of the Camino (photo attached) accepted in Santiago in order to obtain a Compostelle?
To be on the safe side, and because I will need more than one credencial, I have purchased a credencial through Ivar's online shop, but I thought it would be a shame to throw away the one from AFOTC if it was accepted.
Thank you
Buen Camino

YEP; they are an affiliated body so you will be fine.
Just as a matter of interest how many stamp spaces does it have?? I seem to recall that they were limited to around 30/32. I ask only because the credential I obtained from another source was insufficient to cover 33/35 days walking (the Frances) and get the 2 per day from Saria. I ended up doing a cut and paste - two together which gave me around 46/48 (or 50) stamp spaces. Buen Camino!!

Thank you @Saint Mike II ! The one I have has 15 pages, with spaces for 6 stamps per page, except for the 1st one, where the AFOTC put their stamp.
So technically, this would cover 88 stamps, or, if one had 2 stamps per day, 44 days.
Buen Camino!

Great - just remember to bring a zip lock bag to keep it dry!!

Certainly is! Although my sister and I had to get a second Spanish credential in Lyon or Ponferrada (can't remember) as there were enough pages for our "collect them all" attitude to sellos. It will be fine :)
