Default NIE address change

Hi,I believe you have to change your address when you move on your NIE.
I recently moved my location in Spain to the Costa Tropical and was wondering if Motril police station can do this. Have updated my Padron okay.
Any comments welcome

When you do your income taxes, the address is changed. I believe there is a fee associated with changing your address and having a new NIE card issued. The advice I was given by our attorney was don't worry and just have the address changed when you file your annual taxes. Just make sure your Padron is up to date since that is more of a priority than your address associated with your NIE.

Do you mean NIE or your "residency registration" (green card)?

I don't think the address associated with just your NIE matters at all - could be anywhere in the world.

There is no such thing as an NIE card!

Normally I would agree that there is really not much to gain by updating the address on your green certificate, but it is a legal requirement to do so.

More importantly is that when Brexit finally happens, the Spanish authorities will almost certainly try to contact you at the address where you are registered (Extranjería hold the address on your green cert as your contact address), so you could find that the communications might be missed if you are not collecting the mail from your old address, I changed mine recently for this reason.

Which just goes to show how crass the system is here in Spain!

We have to put our domicile address on the green certificate/card yet, as we live in the campo, we can NOT receive any mail there. We have a separate mail address which the authorities refuse to use on anything official!

As a consequence, we are continually having mail sent to us in the campo which we never receive - only found this out by asking where certain things were as a result of embargos etc.

I do wish people would stop using NIE ( white A4 paper) TIE, (residencia plasticised ID) and EU Citizen Registration ( green paper) as if they were the same thing and thus interchangeable. They are completely different documents

Rant over !

oops, sorry but I meant the residency green card which includes my NIE. It has my last address on it and I always use it when asked for NIE as that number is on it. I apologise for confusion (A Senior moment) but will ask which police station can change the address. The last time I changed the address it was free at a police station in Alicante province.

With the exception of a couple of offices one can only make the appointment online

This should help :-

TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT WITH THE POLICE FOR NIE, E.U. Citizen registration, etc.

As you go through you will find links to the application forms and the payment, at any bank, form

.• GO TO https://sede.administracionespublicas.gob.es/icpplus/

• PROVINCES AVAILABLE: CHOOSE the province where your are living/ staying

• SECTIONS AVAILABLE IN PROVINCE: OPEN PAGE AND SELECT SECTION REQUIRED

NOTE there is now a special section for UK citizens which must be chosen that is “Polica-Certificada EU (Exclusivamente para Reina Unido)


ENTER THE DETAILS OF APPLICANT. if you have an NIE show that, if not then show your passport number

• CHOOSE NATIONAL POLICE STATION FOR APPOINTMENT: The one that covers the area where you live
Motivo o tipo de solicitud de la cita, show reason for requesting appointment

• CHOOSE AN APPOINTMENT, AND THEN CONFIRM. If the office you require us not shown that means there are no appointments available at the moment so please try again later

• You must PRINT A COPY OF THE APPOINTMENT, and take it with you to the police station
You can find info here in english about completing the EX15. It is similar to an EX 18 so should help you understand what is required

Juan C, Many thanks for that and I will sort things when my wife returns. The only thing I noticed was again the Province section on many things does not show Granada. Could we put Malaga instead I wonder.
