You already probably know but I think it’s the first thing to say:
According to the Spanish Law, If you move to Spain and you have the intention to stay longer than 3 months you must register in the list of foreign people living in Spain.
It’s a quite simple process, the problem is that every Police Station has different requirements, so before to get the appointment make sure you will be able -according your personal conditions- to apply for the residency in that office.
Alicante office, for example:
- If you are RETIRED, you need to show them your S1 and direct debit the payments of your pension into a Spanish Bank Account.
- If you are AUTONOMO you need to show them your Hacienda Registration and also your last Quarterly Tax Return and the last 3 Social Security payments receipts.
- If you are an EMPLOYEE you need to show them your contract (you must earn 700€ at least and been working for 6 months minimum).
- If you are not in one of the OPTION above then you need a Spanish bank account with at least 8000€ and a private health insurance.
In all the cases you must complete and provide the form application EX18, pay 12€ administration fee (tasa) and an ID photo.
To get an appointment in the Police Station you have to choose the province/county you live in, the option Certificado UE and provide your personal info: name, passport and email address.
