Where to start organising my Credecial?

I'm in the process of planning my Camino (St. Jean - Santiago), to be commenced mid September 2012.

First things first, how do I go about organising a pilgrims Credential?

I'm in Australia, so who do I need to contact to organise this?

Thanks

Hi.

You can just get one from the pilgrims office in St Jean Pied de Port when you arrive.

Buen Camino!

Check out the Camino group based in Adelaide, I think they can issue a credential. Otherwise, it is possible to get one issued in SAPP.

Yes
It is always good to have one from your own country...but the one issued on the Camino is also good..but limited in number of spaces for sellos (stamps).
A good idea would be to get the one in OZ and then get one in SJPP for backup in case you fill up the OZ passport.

For anyone in the U.S. that would like to arrive with pilgrim passport in hand:

americanpilgrims.com

Click on "Request a Credential".

I believe it was $5US or donation when I got mine in '10.

There is also a link to other associations from various countries around the world.

Keep a smile,

Ian, I ordered Credentials for my wife and I last weekend, via this site, and received them today - many thanks. One question - on the inside cover, where you fill in your information, it says Fecha (date) then 'A favor de' and 'DNI' what do these mean?

Andrew.

Hi Andrew. Where it says "A favor de" just write your name or your wife's. It means "Issued to". Where it says "DNI" write your passport or ID card number. DNI is the Spanish achronym for "Documento Nacional de Identidad" (National Identification Document). Buen camino.
