Time of past OR future Camino
Leon-SdC 2018 / SJPdP - SdC 2022.
Planning a Camino for 2024 after having completed two in 2018 & 2022. Did not obtain Compostella's or Distance Certificates. If when completing our next Camino, planning to get a Distance Certificate and is it possible to get the Distance Certificates for the past Caminos? Have the credentials for verification.

hi, what is the url or app to enter data to obtain the Compostela next day?
Here's the address to pre-register to receive the Compostela - you can do it any time before you reach Santiago.

Please note that after you choose your language and read the data privacy policy that it says "Create a Group." Don't worry, for some reason this has been mistranslated, and the Pilgrim's Office has not bothered to correct it.
Also, on the drop down choices for country, profession, etc. none of the options have been translated into the target language.
Thank you trecile. I am getting close to Santiago and I want to take advantage of this tool. Thanks again!

How to I sign the form if I start in Arles, France? It would not accept the city.
Hi @Fred Gaudet, the French town of Arles happens to be in the list of "Starting points" when you first choose the Camino Frances as your "Way" - see screenshot. Pick the town directly from the long list or start by typing the first letters of the town's name into the box next to "Starting point" and pick the name from a shorter list.
