Government authorities are now strongly advising Brits to do this now..
Just picked up my new card. Have you got yours yet? I have.
Heres how you can..see form below..
July 2020 the Spanish government introduced a new residency document to replace the current EU Residency Certificate for UK nationals. (TIE, or Tarjeta de Identidad de Extranjero)
The TIE Card is a biometric card that contains the identity details of a foreigner who lives in Spain.
This is easier to carry as its just like a credit card and is valid proof on its own of id in most places including at the notary.
At the moment it is not compulsory but from what i am hearing from my top sources it soon will be the standard id for all expats in Spain so Personally I think its a good idea to get yours now before the rush.
From what i am hearing from my contacts is that we will all have to change to this new card its just a matter of time. Thats why i went and did mine.
You need to make an appointment before time and There is several papers and documents and a small tax you need to pay and have your finger prints taken but if you speak Spanish then its no problem but if you cant then i recommend you get someone to help you as this card is probably the most important thing after residencia here and important to get it right first time.
The card will be issued for 5 or 10 years, (temporary or permanent) Depending on how long you have been here.
I have arrange with Alexandro’s company here that i have used Personally for many years, to offer my members exclusive 10% discount if they arrange it all for you and they will have one of their interpreters accompany you on the 2 visits that you need to make.
They can tell you what one you will be able to apply for.

This is a very important card so do it right.
