Reply To: Residencia Help



There used to be a tax to pay – 990 Pesetas if I remember right. However in all the official instructions I have read for renewing a residency card nowhere does it mention any tax / timbre.

I find it difficult to believe that there is an 18-month wait. My original card was done in a couple of weeks. However everything is possible.

I’m not going to bother with the application to renew for a few more weeks. When I get round to it I’ll let you know if there are any surprises. Likewise please let me know if you meet with any bureaucratic surprises should you start before me.

Kind regards
