I submitted exactly those things earlier when I got my Schengen sometime ago (except for the paystubs, even though I had a part time job as a student in my university) and the documents were accepted as complete.

To answer the first part: You need a photo ID card with a photo and a number which is recognised nationally or at the level of Europe. In the case of all Spanish nationals, this means their ID card called a DNI, or Documento Nacional de Identidad. Only if this has been lost or misplaced would a Spanish national use their passport instead. This card is used ...

An Italian consulate in the UK is (kind of) in Italy, so they should be able to do things that normally would need to be done in Italy, including handling applications for citizenship. However, you may need to check what rules there are to allow you to become an Italian citizen. There might be rules that you have to live in Italy to become an Italian ...

Then you have a problem. According to TSA: Q. Can I fly with an expired ID? A. If you lose your primary ID or it has expired, TSA may accept other forms of ID to help verify your identity. So if you have to obtain a driver's license to replace your expired one which for Washington DC, Virginia, or Maryland you will be required to provide proof ...

"Firstly, is this checking of ID a legal requirements in Spain, or is it just something the hotels seem to like doing?" That's an excellent question, and I've never known whether it is a legal requirement, and if so, whether that is enforced by the city, the state/department/canton, or the country in question. Note that in Spain it is strictly regional. ...

This seems to be a common practice across Europe that passports/ID are checked at accommodation check-in. Most likely only official government-issued IDs are considered, so most European IDs and all passports. I could not find anything backing this up, a priori no Schengen/Interpol/european law, but I think I heard that multiple times, the only reference I ...

In the UK, I have travelled a few times with Logan Air (a small regional airline that only flies between different Orkney Islands, north of Scotland). Not once was I asked for an ID, not even when I purchased the tickets in person at the airport in Kirkwall. Note, of course, that their island hopper planes sit 6 passengers and don't even have a dedicated ...

I fly frequently on domestic flights in New Zealand (both Air New Zealand and Jetstar), and don't recall the last time I was asked to show identification. For Air New Zealand, from Domestic Check-in: Please remember to carry proof of identity with you as you may be required to present this at check-in. A driver's licence, passport, Airpoints or Koru ...

If flying with British Airways (BA) domestically within the UK, you can use your British Airways Executive Club card as ID. (BAEC = the BA frequent flier program). If you're not a member of the BA Executive Club, you have to show some form of photo ID. I believe that BA still suggest you carry some photo ID with you when doing this, eg in case of being ...

Yes, I have experienced this quite a few times on intra-Schengen flights. As said in the link from the comments Lufthansa probably is the most prominent case due to the extreme amount of automation, but I have flown with a number of airlines and from/to a number of airports and can tell you it depends on the airport/airline combination. Routes I have flown ...

The travel consent letter is addressed to immigration officers, who want to avoid that one parent kidnaps the child to another country without consent from the other parent, thus making it very hard to retrieve the child. Traveling inside the country is much less of a risk, since there is no issue of lack of extradition treaties domestically. Also, as ...
