Spanish term or phrase: Certificacion Literal
Is a Certificacion Literal a full birth certificate in Spain, or is another document required?

The UK passport Office is disputing that the Certificacion Literal is actually a birth certificate.

Is there any practical difference between this and a Certificado Literal?

The UK passport office is correct in that it is not the ORIGINAL birth certificate. However, it is a certified official copy of the original, so if they are not accepting it, they are just being jobsworths, which wouldn't surprise me one bit nowadays.

In Spain, official bodies, like Hacienda or the police will usually accept an officially stamped copy of documents like passports, etc. in place of the original.
