Hello!

I have a question about my NIE. I moved here last year and have nice moved towns - still in the region. Do I have to get the address on my NIE changed? I've empadronarmed myself at the Ayuntamiento buy I'm just a bit worried about my NIE not matching....l

Any help is appreciated!

your NIE/green resident cert?

you are supposed to tell them when you move but I wouldn't panic about it - mine still has my old address on it & has caused no problems (not that I can actually find it atm :eek:) - & I never did change the address on my original NIE until I got the resident cert when they were introduced

I had intended popping over to the extranjería to change it, but with all the new resident rules they have cancelled all appts until they know what they are doing

it's not that bad!!!

just always go armed with everything you think you might need - then everything you don't think you need - several photocopies of all of that - some patience & a smile :D
