Default Residency Certificates, NIE numbers & Padrón

As from roughly March last year (2007) it is now a legal requirement for you in Spain to have a residency certificate. Before that date it was not necessary, but the EU pushed Spain into a corner and this is the way they reacted.

So ..... as soon as you are resident in this country you need to apply, usually to your local Police station, for said certificate within 90 days

as of July 2011 the forms are as follows:

EX15 for NIE only, without registering as resident
EX18 for residents list for EU citizens
EX19 for residents list for family of EU citizens



& here's a link to a list of the oficinas de extranjeros, which is where you take them

What length of time living and working in Spain requires you to get this residency permit?

You have 30 days from when you arrive in the country with the intention to live here. A lot of town halls are not allowing you to sign on the padron unless you have a certificate now, and I have heard of some people not being able to register a car in their name without one

I'm intending to work out there for up to 3 months, not live there permanently, so I take it I don't need to worry about getting one?

No, you're on a long holiday really. Keep your travel documents with you when you are here so you can show when you arrived

I'm intending to live out there for up to 3 months possibly more using my sons place as a base whilst we look around at areas we may want to settle down in, as we are looking to live there permanently when we decide which part we want to settle down in, my income will be from my business in the uk, so do I need to bother with a residency cert. or should i become a resident even though i am not yet permanently living there, also i believe i cant buy a car in spain if i am not a resident is that true if so what is the best way of having a car to use whilst i am there. any help is appreciated.

If it's only 3 months then you probably shouldn't bother with too much bureaucracy. It'll take you up until you leave to get it all sorted out completely legitimately. As Stravinsky mentioned, it's pretty much a long holiday, not residency - so no reason to get a residency card, right?

Are you planning to buy a car? You should consider contacting some of the larger rental agencies to see if they do long term rentals. Otherwise, take yourself directly to a sales lot and they will help you sort it out better than anyone else (they're extremely motivated, right?).

So.... How long do you have to be there before you register?
We are planning to come over in June until the end of October to sing. Do we need to regester?

We plan on coming back to the UK for November and December, then going back to Spain to live permenantly then.

If you're coming here to live then you have to register within 3o days arguably, although many people treat it as 6 months. Speaking realistically you could wait until you return, and in that way if you have a UK reg car it gives you a bit more time as you are not resident in effect

Did you say sing?

Thanks for your reply, very helpful.

Yes we are both singers.

Do you know if I can change my username on here?

Many Thanks
